Capella BSN4014 Unit 6 Discussion 1 & 2

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.

Your initial post should be about 150 words, referenced with at least one APA-formatted reference. It can be a text, any assigned readings, or a reference you find on your own through the Capella Library.

Response Guidelines

Review the plans of fellow learners and respond to at least one. Consider the following:

  • How well have they planned?
  • Did they include things that are different from the things you have in your plan?
  • What kind of insights has this discussion highlighted?

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.
