Description

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 providing emergency assistance, 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? What certification and accreditation requirements are required or waived? What policies do you need in place with area providers? How will patients be identified, medical information be documented and electronic information be shared among providers? 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.
