SSCOR, Inc., a leading manufacturer of medical devices designed to aid healthcare professionals in clearing patient airways, recently announced it is publishing a guide to help emergency preparedness directors plan for potential supply issues that might arise during a disaster situation. The e-book, The Emergency Preparedness Professional’s Guide to Planning for Hospital Supply Line Disruptions, is available for free download at http://info.sscor.com/the-hospital-emergency-preparedness-guide.
Recent natural disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy have demonstrated that hospitals can suffer crippling blows during times of crisis. Yet, these facilities are expected to provide continuous and safe patient care during these challenging events. A carefully considered emergency preparedness plan can ensure hospitals have access to needed supplies and equipment to maintain normal operations and accommodate a potential patient surge. SSCOR’s new e-book details the systems that may be affected by a disaster and highlights steps healthcare facilities can take to care for existing and incoming patients. Among the guide’s highlights:
- Eight key systems, including electrical power, food, and pharmaceuticals, that might be affected during a disaster situation, and key questions to consider when planning to prevent shortages in these areas
- Strategies for stockpiling supplies
- The importance of partnerships in ensuring supply line continuity
