Healthcare Facility

Many of the same preparedness strategies used for Business Preparedness are applicable for healthcare facilities such as hospitals, doctor's offices, long-term acute and chronic care, urgent care centers, and clinics. Additional tips specific to healthcare facilities include:

1. Make precautions to control the spread of disease among patients, visitors and staff.
2. Identify redundant sources for your most necessary supplies.
3. Work with local authorities to share ideas, needs and expectations.
4. Once you have your plan, practice it often.
5. Determine how you will account for patients and visitors in an emergency.

The Centers for Disease Control has a significant amount of resources here.
