When an emergency, whether it is a flood, hurricane, fire, or act of terrorism, hits a hospital, administrators often turn to their lawyers as issues arise in providing care. This webinar introduces AHLA’s Public Interest Committee’s Emergency Preparedness Toolkit, which provides a one-stop resource of emergency preparedness form policies, procedures, links, articles, sample contract language, and legal summary memoranda to assist healthcare attorneys, administrators, and providers in preparing for and responding to the issues that arise during an emergency.
In this webinar, the speakers will provide an overview of emergency preparedness law and then discuss regulatory and operational real-life emergency scenarios your hospital may face. For instance, if out-of-state healthcare professionals are traveling to your state, do they need to be licensed, and what type of liability coverage is available? Is your hospital prepared for a loss of power? Does your hospital have enough food, medication, and supplies on hand? How will patients be evacuated from the hospital? The AHLA Emergency Preparedness Toolkit is an invaluable resource to help address these and many other issues that your hospital could face in an emergency.
