covid-19 and emergency operations:
Speaker: Greg Brooks MSW, HCA

The session will be a review of the CMS Standards for an Emergency Preparedness Plan. It will move beyond that into a
specific discussion of how the COVID 19 pandemic has changed our approach to our Emergency Preparedness Plans, one
example being how the way we approach an All Hazards Vulnerability Assessment has definitely changed and will demand
review due to the COVID 19 Pandemic. Additionally, we will discuss the importance that COVID 19 has placed on our
Emergency Preparedness Plans and Emergency Operations Procedures being tied in with other operational pieces of our
agencies including our Infection Control Programs and our Quality Assessment and Performance Improvement Programs.
