The destroyed hospital needs to be set up within 4 years and it is imperative to continue providing health care services to thousands of residents. The immediate services which need to be provided would depend on the right organization of resources and its allocation for catering to a large mass. How the hospital would reorganize the activities? Primarily the hospital would require taking care of the emergency care unit and successful allocation of facilities and resources is essential. Secondly the old age care unit must be set up for elderly individuals so that appropriate care is taken regarding the same.
This also includes the various emergency health care plans and amenities for the needy (Claudio, 2006). Thirdly the support system needs to be set up at the immediate notice. Such support system would enable better serving of the community at the most appropriate time. Other activities can be highlighted as follows: 1. Record management at the admission registration desk: The records at the admission desk requires to be formatted appropriately and forwarded to the DSS, Placement officer and Local authority for application and approval of the fund. 2. Data store capabilities for the resident register
The effective store and management of the resident’s records are must be clearly made. 3. Nurse records The nurse records are to be well maintained for immediate allocation and to know the availability of the nurses for resident allocation and assignment. 4. Drug Book records and data exchange with the pharmacist The drug book should be shared with the pharmacist for their drug delivery. 5. Record of leaving and returning from day centers The various records of leaving and returning of the patients from the day centers are to be recorded and that poses a serious problem of bed allocation. 6.
Photocopy of the residents register The photocopy of the resident’s information and nursing details are to be taken care. Conclusion Several small camps must be set up in the neighboring areas to attend immediately to the emergency needs of the residents and to bring up better planning and development of health benefits of the organization. The Business System Option (BSO) can be stated as follows: 1. Requirement of a photocopier: The demand of a photocopier is very essential to the nurse manager and care manager to exchange information on scheduling nurses to their duty and to also know the care plan for action.
The major advantage would be to take a quick photocopy of patient’s records for nurse allocation and assignment. The major disadvantage would be the handling of running costs of maintenance, cost of papers, ink and toner. 2. Requirement of a small robust ERP application: The information system in question here would be to integrate all the internal departments like admission cell, nursing, care, food, day care, owner and external entities like DSS, local authority, placement officer and pharmacist.
The data transfer from the admission cell is required by the nursing, care, placement officer, and local authority, DSS for fund application, approval, payment, invoicing and other activities. Such amount of complexity in data exchange and data transfer eats up a serious amount of time and effort. A small ERP system connecting all the hospitals elements would ensure better fetching of records and fulfillment (Cooper, 2003). 3. Requirement of a networking solution: The networking for the hospital would ensure better communication and timely action for meeting up with various compliances.
