Review Ennis’s EMP model. How would you improve it? Is there any crossover with other hospital department responsibilities? Although Ennis has developed a comprehensive plan that can be applied to other calamities other than a surge in incoming contaminated victims, I find some aspects that need to be modified that can uplift the model to an optimal state. Improvements: The model suggests that EMS providers with First Responder Awareness Level training should not be included in the transporting and treatment of the contaminated patients. I find this to be limiting for the hospital abilities to respond and treat contaminated patients. As a part of EMS providers education, the use of PPE and Decontamination process are taught. Hence, it is rather extra precautionary to limit the transporting and treatment abilities to the EMS providers with advanced training. The Ennis model suggests choosing the most isolated areas in the hospital and designates them as the decontamination areas such as the Morgue. Then, it is suggested that an outdoor decontamination area is better. In my opinion, setting up a decontamination area in outdoor settings must be mandatory for several reasons. First, it will significantly limit infections from airborne diseases. Second, it will reduce the financial costs when the hospital decides to shut down its ventilating system. Monitoring the air quality and using instruments and experts will cost the hospital a great deal of money, while they can invest it in more training renewing the decontamination site. Third, setting up the decontamination area outside will limit the interruptions to the hospital operations, the only interruptions will be getting the staff to leave their place of work and respond to the decontamination area. Surely the model approaches the emergency planning and response from different angles and using all the resources within the hospital to achieve its objectives. For example, the model suggests extensive training on PPE application and procedures, which suggest the collaboration of ER staff, OR staff, and health and safety department.
