Program Description: As a home health provider, planning is important because you have to make sure your agency and its staff members have the supplies needed to safely care for your patients in
times of emergency. When planning for contingencies, home health care providers must consider a variety of hazards and events that could impact their patients. Hurricanes,
floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, wildfires, radiation releases, chemical exposures, seasonal and pandemic influenza, and acts of terrorism are just a few examples. There
are 5 phases of emergency preparedness that must be in place and ready for implementation. Learn the simple measures that home health care provider can implement
to increase the personal readiness of their patients and themselves. Become familiar with existing emergency response plans, processes, and procedures in both the
workplace and community. Once you are armed with the necessary resources, help your patients, their family members, and other caregivers to be prepared, assemble a kit, make a
plan and be informed.

Reporting of Perceived Bias
Bias, as defined by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation (ANCC COA/LSNA) is the “tendency or inclination to cause partiality, favoritism, or influence.”
Commercial bias may occur when a CNE activity promotes one or more product(s) (drugs, devices, services, software, hardware, etc.). This definition is not all inclusive and participants may use
their own interpretation in deciding if a presentation is biased. The ANCC COA is interested in the opinions and perceptions of participants at approved CNE activities, especially in the presence
of actual or perceived bias in continuing education. Therefore, ANCC invites participants to access their “ANCC Accreditation Feedback Line” to report any noted bias or conflict of interest in the
education activity. The toll free number is 1(866) 262-9730.
