Mission Continuity Management Team (MCMT) MeetingNovember 22, 2013Mary Vassar, RN, MS


Background
Background

  • BASIC is a 24/7 clinical, academic and research enterprise

  • Over 30 FTE – faculty, staff and post-doc trainees

  • 5 basic science laboratories with over $8 million in annual research funding

  • Housed on first and second floors of Building 1


How we started on continuity planning
How we started on Continuity Planning

  • Needed to be a dynamic process, not a document that is thrown together because approval is needed by the University

  • Needed to involve people throughout our organization working as a team -- rather than “Me” sitting at my computer working in a vacuum and writing a text book plan that would read perfectly to any outside reviewer


Action items prioritized
Action Items Prioritized

Conducted Vulnerability Assessment for Research Labs:

Action Item #1: Preserve Animal Colonies: coordinate plan with LARC to identify care needs and prioritize most irreplaceable animals in the event of loss of boarding capacity.


Action items prioritized1
Action Items Prioritized

Conducted Vulnerability Assessment for Research Labs:

Action Item #2: Preserve Irreplaceable Specimens: 1) coordinate identification of high priority frozen specimens and cubic feet of space needed for off-site storage;

2) pre-event identification of on-site irreplaceable specimens for emergency relocation in the event of back-up power failure. Can’t prioritize at the time of the event.


Planning elements for preservation of irreplaceable frozen specimens
Planning Elements for Preservation of Irreplaceable Frozen Specimens

  • Likely hazards to mitigate

  • Essential response capabilities and dependencies

  • Communications

  • Continuity of operations

  • Development of job action sheets

  • Process for addressing gaps

  • Exercise to test the plans and training procedures


Objectives for day of the exercise
Objectives for Day of the Exercise Specimens

  • Test emergency specimen relocation procedures to determine if:

    • Appropriate actions are identified in the plan & procedures

    • Necessary resources (BASIC & external/upstream) identified

    • Appropriate staff (BASIC & external/upstream) identified

    • Likely scenarios and logistical considerations addressed?

    • What type of training will other staff (new hires, lab, clinical and admin) need – i.e., beyond reading the procedures to implement?

    • How much time will it take to train other employees?

    • How frequently will staff need to practice to maintain familiarity with the procedures?

    • We are confident that we have done everything feasible to assure samples can be salvaged in non-catastrophic emergencies?

  • Hotwash to evaluate what worked and what didn’t and update and improve the Continuity Plan to integrate exercise outcomes.

Baseline - Prior to Planning and Exercise

  • What back-up procedures do we have for -80 freezers?

    • Bldg 1 back-up generator plugs

    • Dry ice from hospital supply or call Air Gas


The exercise scenario
The Exercise Scenario Specimens

  • Two years of drought in California

  • Water reservoir volumes are critically low, and statewide communities are rationing water use.


Saturday July 21, 2012 Specimens

Statewide Power Reserves @ <1%


Saturday July 21 Specimens st @ 8 PM: CA ISO Declared First Ever Stage 3 Emergency and Rolling Blackouts Initiated

16 Million Residential and Commercial Customers without Power. National Weather Service issued Excessive Heat Warning through Tuesday.

San Francisco

Los Angeles


Sunday july 22 2012
Sunday July 22, 2012 Specimens

  • Nearly all BASIC lab faculty and staff are out-of-town at the Annual Meeting of the National Neurotrauma Society in Phoenix through Wednesday.


Sunday july 22 2012 2 pm
Sunday July 22, 2012 – 2 PM Specimens

  • Amity, Ellen, Xioakui and Tim are also going to Phoenix on a 6 PM flight as they all have poster sessions on Monday or Tuesday.

  • They all planned to meet at the lab to ride BART to the airport together and check the freezers due to concerns from news reports about rolling blackouts.

  • Lab temp is over 90 degrees & all freezers alarming


Sunday july 22 2012 exercise begins
Sunday July 22, 2012 Specimens Exercise Begins

  • 2:15 pm - Participants relocate to Freezer Bay

  • Participants have 45 minutes to work through the response plan. Creative problem solving is encouraged during play, however, decisions must be based on reality of the scenario and expected resources.

  • Facilitator will be providing scenario injects as you work through the response plan.

  • Remember to document times, problems, actions and decisions etc. We expect gaps to be identified, we aren’t expecting perfection.

Post Planning and Exercise

  • What back-up procedures do we have for -80 freezers?

    • Bldg 1 back-up generator plugs (power diverted to patient care bldgs)

    • Dry Ice from hospital Supply (allocated to patient care services)

    • Air Gas Delivery (overwhelmed & allocated to patient care services)

    • CO2 back-up system in the freezers (requires batteries and liquid CO2).

    • Dry ice chest with weekly delivery—(research requests will be low priority for allocating dry ice in a disaster)

    • Spare -80 Freezer is staged at Oyster Point (result of planning research and exercise)

    • For future action – send duplicate samples to remote biorepository


Responding kit

Decision Tree

Yes

Check Periodically

Generators on?

No

Keep Door Closed

CO2 Backup

Yes

Notify PI

No

“Save Me Box” Strategy

Put in Dry Ice Chest



Save me freezer boxes
“SAVE ME” Specimens Freezer Boxes

  • Tissue specimen from current Projects

  • 1 set of cut tissues per project

  • Inventory updated periodically


Save me box strategy
“Save Me” Specimens Box Strategy

  • Implement only when Generators and CO2 do not activate.

    • Place in dry ice box (assure weekly delivery has arrived)

    • Place in Cooler with dry ice and relocate to Oyster Point

  • Located in the lower left hand corner of each freezer.



How do i access the freezer at oyster point s biorepository
How do I access the freezer at Oyster Point’s Specimens Biorepository?

  • In an emergency, contact UCSF Police at 476-1414

  • Request to go down the Oyster Point call out list

    • (Otherwise call Anthony Meno at (415) 476-5907, https://clsdsb2b.ucsf.edu)

  • Directions to OP

    • 101 South.

    • Take the Oyster Point Blvd East exit, and go east to Gull Drive.

    • At Gull Drive, turn right.

    • Property Number#072000185

    • Model Number# ULT-25869SIA


Conclusions
Conclusions Specimens

  • Planning process has been critical to improving our ability to preserve research specimens

  • Conducting exercise (not just tabletop) made staff recognize how the details of the structures and processes need to be tested under a variety of scenarios

  • Experiences from Hurricanes Katrina, Irene and Sandy, 2011 Japan Earthquake and Fike Lab fire have increased faculty and staff awareness/buy-in for the importance establishing a culture of preparedness


Conclusions1
Conclusions Specimens

  • There is a struggle to prioritize the time required for department staff and faculty to do effective planning and training on top of existing workloads

  • Support from Esther and UC Ready planning application have provided time saving tools and resources to get the work on our Continuity Plan done.
