Disaster nursing and emergency preparedness

Haiti Example of Nursing Intervention With the objective of aiding the affected people of Haiti in a nursing trip from the US from January 26, 2010 to February 04, 2010 was conducted. This trip has witnessed certain nursing interventions that were highly desirable at such circumstances. One of the examples of primary prevention that has witnessed nursing intervention is by undertaking the responsibility of an anesthetist, despite being a nursing professional. Moreover, nursing intervention in secondary prevention is prominent from the donation of over of 11, 000 antibiotics to the patients during the trip. Furthermore, tertiary prevention is evident from restricting the reuse of gloves by the healthcare professionals and patients (Veenema, 2012).
Innovative Examples
One of the major consequences of natural disaster like earthquake is the loss of people especially including the loss of children. This creates an innovative opportunity for the nursing professionals to contribute in communicating to the family members of such people (Stanhope & Lancaster, 2014).
Phase of the Disaster: Do the Three Proposed Interventions Fall
The three proposed interventions fall under the phase of disaster management of nursing practice. The reason behind the selection of such phase is that it would provide a comprehensive nursing experience and exposure in different stressful circumstances (Veenema, 2012).
People or Agencies Facilitate by the Proposed Interventions
The proposed interventions undertaken during the nursing disaster management trip to Haiti would facilitate the healthcare professionals including doctors, nurses, and others to get practical understanding regarding management of patients in challenging situations. It would also facilitate the Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and the government agencies to execute similar interventions in order to provide effective assistance to the affected people. This proposed intervention is extremely useful with regard to humanity. Moreover, these people or agencies are considerably related to disaster management at large (Stanhope & Lancaster, 2014).
