Riverbend
City: Vulnerable Populations Mission

Resources

  • Review
    the Riverbend City: Vulnerable Populations Mission for this discussion.

The Vulnerable Populations Mission is focused
on the Ruby Lake community. Within the community is a nursing home where many
of the residents have mobility issues—they ambulate walkers, are in wheelchairs,
and/or immobile. Additionally, there is a large Hispanic population that does
not speak and/or understand English, several families with children with
special needs (such as, autism, attention deficit disorder, and so on), and
mothers with infants, toddlers, and school age children. In the wake of a
disaster, the residents of the Ruby Lake community are frightened and unsure
about what is happening. However, the residents must be evacuated, as the
disaster might lead to injury and possible death. As a public health nurse, you
must decide how to handle the situation, make difficult decisions, and
prioritize the evacuation of the residents of the Ruby Lake community.

For this discussion, prioritize the order in
which you will evacuate the residents of the Ruby Lake community and explain
your choices.

  • How
    will you communicate the need to evacuate with each population?
  • What
    resources will you use to help with the evacuation?
  • How
    can you make sure that everyone leaves?
  • What
    will you do if someone refuses to leave because they do not fully
    understand the severity of the situation?

Also discuss the ethical issues that a public
health nurse will face in this disaster response situation. How would you
address these ethical issues? Support your position with references from your
unit readings and any additional peer-reviewed journal.

Response
Guidelines

Respond to a post of at least one fellow
learner as though you are the Director of Public Health Nursing. Consider the
following:

  • Could
    you accept the list based on the explanation?
  • Can
    you offer any suggestions to assist with communicating with the Ruby Lake
    population?

Your response post should be about 75 words,
but may be longer. If you are responding with a personal perspective or an
example from your workplace experience, you are not required to cite a source.
However, if you offer an alternative viewpoint or refer to the ideas or work of
others in your response to a classmate, your response must be supported with an
outside source, which you must cite using APA style.

Planning
for Emergencies

Resources

  • Effective
    disaster preparedness includes a pre-event plan. Community/public health
    nurses can facilitate effective disaster response by ensuring they have
    disaster plans for their families, their social groups, and/or their
    workplace. Consider your own family, and reflect on the following:
  • What
    would you do in the event of a disaster? Would you evacuate? Would you
    spend time gathering precious memories?
  • What
    information do you feel would be critical to have to ensure appropriate
    care for your loved ones?
  • How
    would you ensure the safety of your children?
  • What
    would you do with your pets?

Develop and post your disaster plan for your
family.

BSN4014 Unit 3 Assignment 1 latest 2016 December

Windshield
Survey

Resources

  • For
    community health nurses to be able to plan effective health services for a
    community, it is important for them to understand a community, understand
    any health-related issues in the community and the resources available, as
    well as the gaps in those resources. For this assignment, you will apply
    the skills necessary to understand a community by completing a windshield
    survey of a community of your choice. A windshield survey is so named
    because it is often conducted from a car (though it can also be completed
    on foot, bike, or public transportation) and provides a visual overview of
    the conditions and trends that exist in the community that could affect
    the health of the population. When completing your windshield survey, keep
    in mind that the community you survey will be used as a starting point for
    your other assignments throughout the course.

Use the Windshield Survey Template located in
the Resources area to conduct an assessment of your community. You will
determine what constitutes your community, but you should try to limit your
survey to an area of no more than 1–2 square miles.

Note:Be sure to know the area you are surveying. Your safety is
important to us. We suggest that you bring a friend with you. Scan the area for
potential safety issues. Never put yourself or anyone else in potential danger.
Do not bring anything of value with you if you choose to conduct the survey
outside of a car.

Next, identify one or more key health care
issues in the community. These issues could encompass anything from providing
appropriate services for an aging population to dealing with an increase in
incidence of a specific disease. After your health care issues have been
identified, locate and interview two key informants. Key informants are people
who are knowledgeable about the problems in their community. For example, if your
identified health care issue was an increase in teen pregnancies, a school
nurse could be one of your key informants. If your identified health care issue
is an increase in type 2 diabetes, you could interview a person with consistent
contact with a variety of community members—for example, someone like a
minister or a health care professional in a community center. Keep your
interview questions focused on the identified problem from the informant’s
perspective.

While completing your Windshield Survey keep
in mind the following:

  • Use
    the Windshield Survey Template located in the Resources area.
  • How
    will you describe the boundaries, environment, and culture of the
    community?
  • How
    will you describe the health care services in the community?
  • How
    will you describe the health care issues of the community?
  • What
    assets does the community possess with regards to providing health care
    services during a crisis?
  • What
    are potential obstacles in the community with regards to providing health
    care services during a crisis?
  • How
    will you relate the information from your interviews about community
    health issues to your own observations of the community?

When you submit your assignment it should
contain or follow requirements below:

  • Title
    page.
  • Windshield
    Survey Template.
  • Interview
    questions and responses.
  • Your
    notes on how the responses of the key informants matches or differs from
    your observations of the community.
  • APA
    format.
  • Times
    New Roman font, 12 pt.

Service
Learning Experience

Resources

  • For
    this assignment you are to select a service learning experience in your
    community and participate in that experience. Some example of appropriate
    service learning experiences include, but are not limited to:
  • Attending
    a meeting of your local health department.
  • Attending
    a PTO meeting that focuses on a health issue.
  • Attending
    a faith-based meeting that addresses a health issue.
  • Volunteering
    four hours at a homeless shelter or a soup kitchen and observing health
    issues related to the populations you are serving.

You may choose the event, but the focus of the
event must be health-based.

In addition, the service learning experience
should also include oneof the
following expectations:

  • It
    must take place in, or be focused on, the community/neighborhood that you
    observed for your Windshield Survey in Unit 3.
  • It
    must involve the diverse or vulnerable population that you described in
    your Windshield Survey in Unit 3.
  • It
    must focus on or address the health concern that you described to complete
    your Windshield Survey in Unit 3.

Once you have completed your service learning
experience, write 2–3 pagesdetailing
your experience. When composing your report you should include the following
components:

  • Title
    page.
  • A
    brief description of the event you attended, and why you selected this
    event.
  • A
    brief description of how the event was connected to your work on the
    Windshield Survey.
  • A
    brief explanation of the purpose of the event you attended (for example,
    discussing the spraying pesticides to reduce mosquito population to
    control West Nile Virus, a report on the predicted nutritional effects of
    adopting a new school lunch program, or to answer questions about a
    proposal for community health responses to seasonal flooding, et cetera).
  • Brief
    notes on the impact that community stakeholders had on the focus or
    outcomes of the event.
  • Brief
    notes on the impact that community diversity had on the focus or outcomes
    of the event.
  • An
    explanation of the impact that the event did have, or could potentially
    have, on the health of the community.
  • A
    description in which you detail the impact of the event on the community’s
    health and the role nursing might play in the outcome. For example, if you
    attended a PTO meeting where the focus was making sure that elementary
    school children have PE, the impact might be that PE may reduce the
    incidence of childhood obesity, and the role of nursing might be to help
    formulate a healthy lifestyle plan.
  • Minimum
    of three resources, including at least one peer-reviewed journal not
    required for this course.
  • APA
    Format.
  • Times
    New Roman font, 12 pt.

Disaster
Response Plan

Resources

  • For
    this assignment you will be developing a disaster plan to address a hypothetical
    disaster that could plausibly strike the community that you observed for
    your Windshield Survey.

A disaster can come in many forms. We might
tend to associate disasters with mass natural disaster, like Hurricane Katrina
or the 2011 earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan. However, disasters also
include relatively small man-made disasters, such as a fire in an apartment
building or a gas leak in a factory (Maurer & Smith, 2013). You will also
be asked to select one of the articles from the list below that addresses a
response to a disaster, or provides guidelines for creating a disaster response
plan. You will briefly evaluate the article’s disaster response practices and
also explain aspects for the article’s disaster response that would be appropriate
to incorporate into your plan, as well as aspects that would not be feasible to
incorporate. By evaluating responses to disasters in communities outside of
your own, you will be able to bring in global perspectives as well as gain a
deeper understanding of aspects of disaster response plans that are universal,
as well as aspects that are only primarily applicable to specific communities.

Choose one of the following articles (see the
Resources area for links to these articles):

Your plan should address and include the
following:

Section
1: Article Evaluation (1–2 pages)

  • An
    evaluation of the disaster response presented in the article you selected
    from the provided list.
  • An
    explanation of aspects of the article’s disaster response that you plan on
    incorporating into your own Disaster Response Plan. Please include your
    rationale for why you are choosing to incorporate these aspects into your
    plan.
  • An
    explanation of aspects of the article’s disaster response that would not
    be appropriate or plausible to include in your disaster response plan.
    Please include your rationale for why these aspects would not be
    appropriate or plausible to incorporate these aspects into your plan.

Section
2: Community Disaster Response Plan (5–7 pages)

  • Describe
    the hypothetical disaster for your surveyed community that your plan will
    be addressing. Be sure to include details such as:

    • Scope
      of the disaster.
    • Intensity
      of the disaster.

      • Effects
        on the community environment as a result of the disaster.
      • Immediate
        health impacts on people in the community.
      • Medium
        and long-term health impacts on people in the community.
  • Communication
    procedures: When and how should public health department nurses
    communicate with each other in a disaster? When should they communicate
    with other first responders, law enforcement, and other
    resources/responders in a disaster?
  • Communication
    procedures for coordinating care with hospitals and other resources.

    • Note:
      During disasters, acute care hospitals become overwhelmed—less critical
      patients may be treated at field hospitals, leaving room for critical
      patients in functioning acute care facilities. Identify who will
      communicate with whom.
  • The
    triage system you would use for assessing victims.
  • How
    will you address the needs of vulnerable populations (the elderly,
    children, mentally ill, homeless, and so on)?

    will you address cultural groups and non-English speaking persons?
  • Housing
    and shelter:

    • How
      will you let the residents of your community know where to go?
    • What
      system will you use to fill shelters?
    • How
      will you communicate shelter capacity to prevent overcrowding the
      shelters? What resources will you use to help staff shelters?
    • How
      many nurses will you allocate for shelters? Will you use nurses to staff
      shelters?
    • Will
      you use other nursing resources to staff shelters, such as Red Cross,
      U.S. Commissioned Corps, military nurses, and so on?
  • What
    resources will you use to help provide food, water, and toilet facilities
    for victims?

    • Who
      will you call and when will you call?
  • What
    procedures will you implement to prevent disease outbreak?
  • How
    will you care for the needs of the public health department nursing staff?

Other requirements and considerations:

  • Your
    plan should be as detailed as possible.
  • Use
    a minimum of four peer-reviewed journal articles (the article you select
    from the provided list counts as one of the four) to support the
    effectiveness of your plan. Be sure to use proper APA style and
    formatting.
  • Include
    a title page.
  • Include
    a reference page. Be sure to use proper APA style and formatting.

Capella
BSN4014 Unit 9 Assignment 1 latest 2016 December

Community
Assessment and Nursing Care Plan

Resources

Your final assignment for this course has two
components. For the first component you will use the information you obtained
in your Windshield Survey and interviews from Unit 3 to develop a Community
Assessment. The second component utilizes the Community Assessment to develop a
Nursing Plan.

Community
Assessment (5–7 pages)

Using the information in your Windshield
Survey, identify threehealth-based
problems within the community you surveyed. Explain why you believe these are
problems within the community. Then develop onenursing
diagnosis for each problem. Use references to support your nursing diagnosis.
This portion of your project will include:

  • Your
    Windshield Survey.
  • The
    key informant interview questions and responses.
  • Description
    of three health-based problems.
  • Description
    of one nursing diagnosis for each problem.

Note: The description of the three
health-based problems and their nursing diagnoses should add an additional 1–2 pagesof material to this
section. Your Windshield Survey and interview questions and responses will be
however long they were when you submitted them in Unit 3.

Nursing
Care Plan

Select one of the problems from your Community
Assessment and develop a nursing care plan for that problem. The Nursing Care
Plan will use the nursing diagnosis from the Community Assessment to help
develop nursing interventions. This portion of your project will include:

  • A
    description of the problem that addresses the epidemiology of the problem,
    10–15 year trends of the problem, a comparison of the epidemiology to any
    health disparities for local, state, national, and global populations.
  • Your
    selection of three primary nursing interventions for the identified
    problem.
  • Your
    selection of three secondary nursing interventions for the identified
    problem.
  • Your
    selection of three tertiary nursing interventions for the identified
    problem.
  • A
    description and explanation of the nursing role in relation to the
    identified problem, and what the nurse will do at eachlevel of
    intervention (for example, client teaching, project management, direct
    delivery of care, surveillance, and so on).

This explanation must be specific and answer
the following questions:

1. What is
the nursing role in the primary interventions?

2. What
specifically does your plan require the nurse to do?

3. Based
on your primary interventions, what will the nurse do in the secondary
interventions?

4. What
specifically will the nurse do in the tertiary interventions?

You will need to support your Nursing Care
Plan with current literature:

  • A
    minimum of one peer-reviewed journal article that supports your choice of
    the problem (for example, an article that supports the statement that
    infant mortality is a problem).
  • A
    minimum of one peer-reviewed journal article that supports one of your
    nursing interventions (for example, an article supporting a statement that
    prenatal education programs are efficacious and improve birth outcomes).
  • A
    minimum of one peer-reviewed nursing research article supporting the role
    of nursing (for example, a research-based article that supports the idea
    that clients prefer prenatal education classes that are delivered by a
    nurse).

You may use your course text and unit readings
as resources, but you must also use at least two resources not required for
this course. Be sure to follow proper APA style and formatting when citing and
referencing these articles.

Your final project submission should be
organized with the following:
