Nursing Home Emergency Management System

In the day-to-day management of a Nursing Home, we know how important it is to have a streamlined Fire Safety, Health & Safety and Internal Emergency Management Plan in place to ensure the comfort, happiness and safety of residents and staff

We have designed a Nursing Home Emergency Management System for  Nursing Homes which deals with all aspects of Fire Safety, Health & Safety and Emergency Management including, staff training, documentation and equipment.

Having a comprehensive plan in place to ensure that in the event of an emergency the nursing home staff have the knowledge and equipment in place to competently respond and deal as quickly and effectively as possible is a key part of any care plan for your resident.

Residential care facilities such as nursing homes are required by the Local Authority (Fire and Rescue Service) an Nursing Home Emergency Management System and to have pre-fire planning drawings and supporting documentation submitted to the Fire and Rescue Service. This information gives the operational Fire and Rescue Service personnel information critical to them in arriving at an incident such as entry points, access routes, fire hydrant positions, bypass valve locations, fire panel locations, provision of protected corridors, main electrical isolation points, main gas isolation valve, oxygen storage areas etc.

The Nursing Home Emergency Management System can also help you have s Safety Statement which is a legal requirement under the Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 for all employers. The Centre Safety Statement is a written document which describes how Health & Safety within the Nursing Home is managed.

A Health and Safety Statement is your duty of care to your employees to manage risks and hazards in the workplace. A risk assessment is a combined effort of identifying and analysing potential events that may negatively impact individuals, assets, and the environment; and making judgments “on the tolerability of the risk, based on a risk analysis” while considering influencing factors.

Phoenix STS  produce this information, liaises with the Fire & Rescue Service and the Health & Safety Authority to ensure they are satisfied with the information provided. Another benefit of having our system in place is being fully compliant with HIQA in the area of Fire Safety, Health & Safety and Emergency Management.
