Some of the nursing intervention related to the level of primary prevention, include identification of the tragedy menace and people predominantly susceptible to the earthquake effects, in this scenario Haiti. For example, workshops launched to educate the masses regarding tragedy prevention and preparedness and agencies to develop plans to avert catastrophes when possible and restraining the morbidity and death rate. There should be identification of resources to disaster response, in this case nurses should recruit and train nurses volunteers to deal with the risks effects.
Secondary prevention would include, communicating any relevant information regarding related effects on health to the pertinent government agencies. For example, synchronize the stipulation of the needed crisis and custom health care without delay following disaster, which include prevention of injury and provision of water and food, vector control, and transmissible diseases control. it is important if nurses scrutinize the sanctuary sites for any risks to health. Finally, tertiary prevention by nurses involves follow-up care availability to the victim hit by the disaster. For example, should involve evaluation of the response to the disaster and succeeding modification of response plans for future tragedy (Grand Canyon University, 2016).
The three levels fall under the preparedness phase. This is because they all involve all the outline of measures or tactics designed to save victims lives and also minimizing the possible damages when the tragedy of earthquake occurs. Nurses need support from agencies: federal government, the reason being they would be able to assist assuring that the plans of the nurses are implemented; the local municipal, they would be in charge waste management for prevention of infectious disease spreading; and National weather service to update on the earthquake and weather issues (Martin, n.d).
