ABSTRACT

LLIS Best Practice: Emergency Management Programs for Healthcare Facilities: Hazard Vulnerability Analysis: Assembling the Planning Team   [open pdf - 52KB]

"This Best Practice identifies which healthcare facility staff and community members should be involved in the hazard vulnerability analysis (HVA) process. Healthcare facilities should begin by assembling a team to conduct the HVA, possibly as a subcommittee of the facility's emergency management or safety committee. All team members should be familiar with the facility's disaster plan. There are two categories of participants: facility and non-facility. Facility participants include clinical personnel, non-clinical personnel, and incident management. Candid feedback from all facility operations and other support staff is necessary to ensure a thorough assessment of the facility."
