Abstract:
Leadership Moments-Nursing Systems Response to a Disaster Event
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Travis, Lucille, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:Texas Woman’s University
Title:Baccalaureate Program Coordinator
The Texas Medical Center, located in Houston, Texas is home to 42 member health care institutions. Combined together, the facilities provide over 6,000 licensed beds totaling 5.4 million patient visits in 2000. Tropical storm Allison struck on June 8th, 2001, causing damage and devastation from unexpected flood waters. Five hospitals in the Texas Medical Center were shut down. Many had their operations disabled or impacted in some way. Patients were transferred to other area institutions. As an aftermath to the storm, the medical center was depleted down to about 4500 beds. It is viewed as the largest peacetime evacuation of patients. The flood brought together different, and often competing institutions. During the crisis there was a sharing of facilities and personnel. But along with the devastation emerged heart-warming stories as the medical center hospitals, health care institutions and their personnel worked together to keep delivering patient care. Chief nursing officers will discuss the nursing leadership decisions related to evacuating patients and receiving patients during this unprecedented disaster event.
