Preparing your facility for a natural disaster

From hurricanes and tornadoes to wildfires and floods, natural disasters can strike at anytime, anywhere. Does your facility have a disaster plan? How realistic is it? And do you know where to go for help if you need it?

To make sure your facility has the appropriate disaster plan in place, join Thomson American Health Consultants on Tuesday, Nov. 16, from 2:30-3:30 p.m. ET for If Disaster Strikes, Is Your Healthcare Facility Prepared? —a timely audio conference designed to address the essential needs and requirements of hospital disaster plans.

Our speakers include two health care professionals who have faced such natural disasters recently and will provide a wealth of proven and practical information. Mata Guttman, RN, lead ED supervisor at Charlotte Regional Medical Center in Punta Gorda, FL, will reveal how her facility responded to losing its entire ED when Hurricane Charley made a surprise visit last September. David Hoyt, MD, chief of the division of trauma, burn, and surgical intensive care at University of California, San Diego Medical Center, will discuss how his facility dealt with a recent bout of Southern California wildfires that lead to a record number of burn victims being treated.

Your fee of $249 includes presentation materials, additional reading, and free continuing education. For more information contact customer service at (800) 688-2421 or by e-mail at
