The Storm is Approaching. What Would you do?

It’s a CMS Condition for Coverage for ASC’s to have written disaster preparedness plans.  Besides, it makes good sense to be ready before the storm hits anyway.

Where are the flood zones?  Who must evacuate?  Where at evacuation centers located?  Will you or your facility have a role to play during a hurricane or its aftermath?  These are just a few questions to ask before the threat of a hurricane according to the July 2010 article “Weathering the Storm” by Nancy Burden.  This article describes how to maintain safety and minimize the damage when Mother Nature strikes.  Also included in the article is the Natural Disaster Checklist for Hurricane Preparedness.

Is your ASC prepared?  Are you ready?
