    Han Suk Jung | Chun Jiyoung | Cho, Chung Min and 1other persons | 2019, 15(5) | pp.1~12 | number of Cited : 1
    The purpose of this study is to identify disaster preparedness among community health nurses. The study subjects were 381 community health nurses in the Seoul metropolitan area, Chungcheong-do, and Gangwon-do. An independent t-test, one-way ANOVA and Scheffe test were used to compare stages of disaster preparedness. The preparedness of community health nurses were 3.27±.79, followed by pre disaster preparedness stage, disaster response stage, and disaster recovery stage. The related factors of disaster preparedness were age, carrier, disaster education and drills in workplace, experience, and awareness of disaster. Recommendations are given for the development and implementation of a disaster nursing curriculum dealing with disaster preparedness because community health nurses self-reported to be less prepared concerning family preparedness in both the pre disaster preparedness and the disaster recovery stages.

    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to raise the morale of fire officers who are disaster management activists and to find the factors that affect morale in order to manage the morale of fire fighting organization efficiently. Morale can be defined as a voluntary, ongoing state or spirit that recognizes an organization's goals, maximizes its ability to achieve its goals, and works with its members. The main results of this research are as follows; First, job stability and low concerns about punishment are affecting morale. Second, working conditions such as salary, allowance, welfare, and working time affect the morale. Third, working environment including workload, job intensity and difficulty, and risk of work were found to have no effect on morale. Forth, social recognition, social status, and social status did not affect morale. Fifth, fair personnel system and career management are affecting morale. Sixth, Self-actualization such as pride, self-esteem, aptitude, education and training system affects morale. Finally, the positive relationship with the peers, the trust and belief of the supervisor and the subordinates, and the strong sense of belonging to the fire department were found to affect morale.

    A Concept Analysis of Nurses' Grit

    Lee jiyeon | HUR YUJIN | LEE WON JIN and 1other persons | 2019, 15(5) | pp.35~48 | number of Cited : 3
    The purpose of this study was to identify and define the concept of a nurses’ grit. Using Schwartz-Barcott & Kim’s Hybrid model that identify the concept by extensive literature at the theoretical stage of the research, and the analysis of the in-depth interview data conducted by the career nurses in the fieldwork stage, are compared and analyzed. The participants in dept-interview were 10 nurses who working in a general hospital. As a result of this study, the concept of nurses’ grit was categorized into 3 dimensions: the cognitive, the behavioral, and emotional dimensions. Three attributes and twenty-one indicators were defined. Nurses’ grit was defined as the power to persistent effort to foster professionalism and to achieve long-term goals with interest. The concept of nurses’ grit derived from this study is meaningful in that it provided guideline for developing a strategy to reinforce grit in nurses. It is also expected to be a useful reference for personnel management and teaching by be aware of the attributes and indicators of nurses’ grit to strength the grit in nurses.

    Hyo-Jeong Choi | Ho Jung Kim | Kim Hye Sun | 2019, 15(5) | pp.49~56 | number of Cited : 0
    This study was conducted to compare the effectiveness of the newly developed K-hoc with that of a conventional method. The period is from 1 May 2017 to 31 January 2018, Patients who visited the emergency room for ascites paracentesis were treated. The medical institution provides education to the medical staff who perform procedure in the emergency room. There were 99 total participants in this study Evaluation of the total procedure time revealed that K-hoc(mean 5.6 ± 0.9 min) was more rapid than conventional method (mean 3.9 ± 0.6 min) (p<0.001). As a result of common errors conventional method is the removal of a niddle(6.8%), a failure of fixation(5.1%), Split of ascite fluid(10.2%) but errors in the implementation of the new method were not reported. When we evaluated the response after all process, satisfaction with K-hoc(8.8) was greater than that with conventional method(9.8).

    Evaluation of Future Water Supply Variation in River Unit Basin by Climate Change

    Yong Hyeon Gwon | Gye Woon Choi | Byoung-JOO lee | 2019, 15(5) | pp.57~69 | number of Cited : 1
    Recently, Flood and drought occurs more frequently throughout the world due to an unusual exchange in the climate. As a result of repeated drought situations, studies on changes in water supply in the future depending on climate change impacts, and a water balance analysis model for improving accuracy by analyzing them, are continuously being developed. Therefore, in this study, the TANK model based water supply analysis was conducted to identify the future water supply change in the Sapgyocheon upper stream area by using the meteorological data in the RCP 8.5 scenario of the Korea Meteorological Administration. As a result of analyzing the annual average water supply capacity change rate for the future period, average annual potential supply, supply and surplus supply over the reference period tended to increase S1, decrease S2, and increase S3, while deficiency tended to decrease S1, increase S2 and decrease S3. Demand for S1, S2 and S3 has been shown to decrease. Based on the results of this study, it is expected to be used to predict damages and identify water supply and demand for future droughts by river basin.

    A Study on Energy Saving System Utilizing Sewage Tank Heat Source

    Sang Haw Baek | Gye Woon Choi | 2019, 15(5) | pp.71~83 | number of Cited : 0
    A reason for not using the heat source of waste water despite the high temperature of life is that a lack of economic efficiency and a lack of trust in the system. This study has been studied so that problems in the existing system can be supplemented and applied to the heating and cooling system of buildings using a waste water source. The structural problems of the existing waste water heat exchange system, Slime and Scale, show a lot of difficulties. Because of these difficulties, this study suggested other innovative methods. It proposed a heat recovery technique called water casing and a heat accumulator called combined heat source heat accumulator water tube. It also found a correlation with ambient air temperature by using a special condition of heat source by life sewage. Through these studies, we will convert the amount of small, unused energy such as living sewage that we have throw away throw away throw awaythrowed out into effective energy by accumulating heat. Also, not only do we change our perception of energy recycling, but also apply it as a heating and cooling system. We believe that these efforts can contribute to the mandatory certification of zero-energy buildings and the mandatory installation of new and renewable facilities.

    A Study on the Factors Affecting the occurrence of Disaster Conflict

    Da Hee Lim | leesunwoo | Seong Suk Tak | 2019, 15(5) | pp.85~101 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to verify the impact factors on the occurrence of disaster conflicts. To this end, a research model was derived through a review of prior studies on conflicts and disaster conflicts. The analysis found that the factors that have a statistically significant effect on conflict occurrence were disaster factors (whether or not life threat is felt), national support (economic support, health care services), and institutional response capabilities(local governments). Based on the results of the analysis, it was suggested that the government should prepare clear guidelines for economic support, and second, disaster management should strengthen the practical role of local governments that are well aware of the current situation of the region. This study is meaningful in that we have looked at the causes of conflicts that may arise from future disasters when there is still not enough research on them. Nevertheless, firstly, it is limited in that it fails to take into account the dynamic of the conflict situation and secondly, the specificity of conflict generation due to the type of disaster has not been considered.
