The guidebook addresses preparedness exercise-related requirements for Federal funding and hospital accreditation. It is intended for use in planning, conducting, and evaluating such exercises, with the goal of improving hospital emergency preparedness programs. It also can serve as a resource for senior leadership to help increase institutional commitment to provide the necessary resources for successful preparedness exercises."
