Disaster Preparedness for Hospitals and Healthcare Organizations within the Community Infrastructure brings together those individuals from the hospital and healthcare community who are responsible for ensuring the resiliency of healthcare services during a high consequence or catastrophic event within a jurisdiction. Through a focus on preparedness processes and activities,
this course provides an opportunity for participants to acquire the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to help them ensure the sustainability of their facilities and organizations during all types of disasters.
This course introduces the various natural, technological, and civil hazards to which hospitals and healthcare organizations may be vulnerable and the potential impacts of those hazards.
Federal guidelines and legislation that serve to aid in the preparedness for, and response to, incidents involving these hazards are discussed, as are current emergency management standards for the hospital community. Participants review response and recovery issues that should be addressed by medical facilities and organizations in preparation for a large-scale incident, including identification of critical resources necessary for response and recovery.
