During natural disasters, hospitals must bounce back, health officials say
It's all about bouncing back, recovering and then moving forward after a violent weather event. The proper response requires developing plans, practice, practice, practice and then putting those measures to work when the moment calls for action. Whether our hospitals and medical facilities are safe and ready to help communities during and after weather events is a vital topic. Some areas are more prone to disasters than others, but it takes only one serious event to ravage a normally safe area. Hurricanes, tornadoes and floods can cause casualties on a large scale, increasing the need for hospital readiness.
