He graduated from the university of Houston with a Bachelor’s of Science in 1994 and Masters of Science in Environmental Sciences in 1996. He is a Certified Industrial Hygienist, Certified Safety Professional, Certified Healthcare Constructor, Certified Healthcare Facilities Manager and Certified Hazardous Materials Manager and has been Certified as an Industrial Fire Fighter.

Additionally, he has had the experience of responding to numerous major emergency events such as Hurricanes Ike and Harvey as well as several major fires and large scale chemical releases.

Abstract

On January 4, 2017 at 1:18 pm UTMB-Health experienced a fire the scale of which destroyed the entire second floor elevator lobby, necessitated a complete evacuation of the John Sealy Hospital and resulted in smoke damage to most areas of the building. Recovery efforts started approximately 30 minutes after the fire began and continued for more than 4 weeks. Emergency responders and staff’s rapid and sometimes heroic actions resulted in no patient injuries and only one reported, minor staff injury. This case study will examine the events of the day, contributions to fire damage caused by contents, response by staff, effects to the organization and structured recovery processes. UTMB-Health responded quickly, evacuated an entire hospital and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in under 30 minutes and applied typical Incident Command System techniques to recover from this major fire event. Several very surprising lessons were learned from the coordinate, formal investigation conducted by state, local and UTMB-Health professionals. Subsequent, recorded burn testing also showed surprising results from the contents and will be demonstrated. Material content, finish types and contribution to the overall damages will be reviewed along with operational challenges. Other topics reviewed include: infection control issues due to smoke damage, loss control activities, emergency response challenges, and early communication challenges during the first 15 minutes of chaos and coordination of emergency response improvement activities with the local fire department.

Abstract

For many years, the physical environment has been by far the most significant area of accreditation findings in healthcare. Even worse, the top 10 findings have consistently been the same. The majority of these findings are very specific to the daily operations and activities of front line maintenance personnel.

In this presentation, technicians will examine the CMMS Healthcare Accreditation Annual Report with a focus on Physical Environment/Environment of Care operational non-compliance issues. A detailed understanding of these findings and how they directly relate to the daily activities of technicians will be conducted.

The connection between the underlying code and accreditation requirement will also be reviewed.

The intent is not only to raise awareness, but to educate attendee’s on what they can do to be a positive impact on safety and accreditation.

Abstract

“Changing Landscape of Healthcare Security---Past/Present/ Future” Abstract of Presentation: With the ever changing internal and external expectations of healthcare security, today’s security professional must be able to accept and adapt to this environment. Healthcare is a highly regulated industry that does not slow down, and if we do not stay ahead of the change we will be left out of these exciting opportunities. This session will explore lessons learned from the past to develop a game plan for the future. We must anticipate this change in a positive way, in order to provide a true understanding of what healthcare security holds for our customer, staff and organization.

"US hospitals and health systems expended approximately $2.7 billion responding to violence in 2016" (AHA). Unaddressed violence in healthcare results in more injury, illness, low morale, lost work days, job turnover, and law suits. Healthcare facilities should establish a process and multi-disciplinary team to identify, assess, validate, mitigate and respond to threats of violence or other behaviors of concern. What are the leading practice guidelines for building and maintaining a threat management program?
