When disaster strikes, hospitals and health care systems are on the front line of ensuring the safety of the community and the existing vulnerable patient population. Power outages, water shortages, major accidents and natural disasters can’t be allowed to stop your facility from providing lifesaving care to those who need it. This purpose can only be served if your hospital is resilient.

This presentation provides an outline for the first step in the resiliency process: assessing your facility’s vulnerability. A cross-section of health care stakeholders – an owner, risk manager, architect, and MEP engineer – will discuss the six stages of a thorough vulnerability assessment to determine where your facility may be at risk and the steps required for mitigation.

By taking proactive steps and making concrete plans to further the disaster preparedness of your facility, you’ll be better equipped to answer the call of your community when the worst occurs.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the risks associated with an outdated or incomplete disaster preparedness plan
  • Prepare the components of a comprehensive vulnerability assessment
  • Identify the four key areas your vulnerability assessment team should include to cover the full spectrum of threats
  • List the tools and resources available for conducting a comprehensive vulnerability assessment
