Shelter in Place for Health Care

Overview: Participants work as the management team for a fictional Nursing Home. Suddenly, you feel a rumble that shakes your facility - a news report blares, “... chemical cloud ... all area buildings must Shelter-in-Place ...”. Now the chaos begins. There are unsettled residents, angry family members, and confused staff members. How will the management team handle the situations that arise when residents and guests are forced to stay inside the designated shelter-in-place areas for a long period of time? How will the staff continue to provide care with limited resources? How will they keep residents, staff, and guests inside and keep throes on the outside from getting in?
