Emergency
Response Plans

"PRIVATE-SECTOR PREPAREDNESS IS NOT A LUXURY; IT IS A COST OF DOING BUSINESS IN THE POST-9/11 WORLD.” - THE 9/11 COMMISSION REPORT

HELP Paradigm specializes in developing company-wide, universally accessible Emergency Response Plans capable of being utilized for every site, potential hazard, and regulatory requirement. We accept critical advice and build upon feedback following surveys. This technique has resulted in a plan that is highly functional, and what surveyors want to see. HELP’s Emergency Response Plans incorporate site-specific actions and consistent best-practice procedures that significantly improve quality, accessibility, and accuracy of response planning programs.

ODH Surveyors have come to recognize our response plans, and they know that facilities that have chosen to hire us have gone above and beyond to ensure their facility is prepared. 

Crisis Management

“The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word ‘crisis.’ One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger–but recognize the opportunity.”

Every crisis situation is unique and can have a negative impact on a company’s short and long-term reputation, financial performance, and overall longevity. Therefore, it is critical that a crisis management response framework be in place long before a crisis occurs. An effective Crisis Management Plan can result in:

  • Accelerated resolution of a crisis

  • Minimized negative profile or public image

  • Reduced business interruption

  • Enhanced public image

  • Unaffected financial performance

Disaster Training

The word disaster means many different things depending on who you ask. While the term “disaster” is usually synonymous with naturally occurring events such as weather, a disaster can be anything that negatively affects your facility.

 

We’ve developed an engaging role-playing scenario that acts out an active shooter event. While we would rather not think of such a scenario occurring, it is unfortunately a necessity in today’s world. Think an active shooter will not happen in your facility? How about a hostile family member of a resident or a disgruntled former employee? What we’ve created blends these realisms into an opportunity that requires an intense use of verbal and creative skills to succeed.

Emergency Manager

Hospitals, universities, cities, counties and countless other institutions have Emergency Managers; why shouldn’t you? This is the foundation of who we are, emergency managers. There are others in Ohio offering their services for CMS Emergency Preparedness requirements, but do you really want a nursing home administrator to be your emergency manager? The answer is no.

 

HELP Paradigm is the only company in the United States providing Emergency Management as a Managed Solution. It is cost prohibitive and inefficient having administrators or maintenance personnel trying to manage a new regulatory requirement, so allow us. We will manage your program every step on your way to regulatory compliance. With the threats of Emergency Preparedness becoming an Immediate Jeopardy the time to act is now.
