  • "Due to the complex nature of emergency preparedness, it is critical that healthcare executives ensure their organization develops an all-hazards emergency operations plan relevent to their location and type of organization."

    —American College of Healthcare Executives, November 2009 Policy Statement on Healthcare Executives' Role in Emergency Preparedness

  • "[Health Care Emergency Management] covers the entire gamut of emergency preparedness topics applicable to the health sector. Policies and practices for hospitals are intertwined with broader emergency response topics such as incident command systems, credentialing of volunteer workers, trauma triage protocols, and mass fatality management. The book's strength is in its solid, practical, experience-based information and tools.

    This valuable compendium of principles and practices for healthcare emergency management is a great resource for education and training, and an even more valuable resource for institutional and community planning efforts. The book's comprehensive approach to the role of health professionals and institutions in emergency situations nicely compliments current books on emergency management and on public health emergency preparedness and response."

    —Bernard J. Turnock, MD, MPH, University of Illinois at Chicago, Doody’s Review Service

  • “… a welcome addition to disaster management literature because it specifically focuses on preparedness for hospitals. With its 31 invited contributors, this collaborative effort combines the perspectives of nurses, lawyers, social workers, physicians, paramedics, and public health administrators.

    As a textbook it is well organized, with each chapter introduced by learning objectives and peppered with case scenarios. By presenting a framework for the mitigation of, preparedness for, response to, and recovery from any disaster, Health Care Emergency Management demonstrates how to “systematically bring order to the chaos while attempting to ensure the best possible outcome for the greatest number of people” (p 341).

    This compendium will be a valuable tool for any clinician, administrator, or emergency director preparing for hospital-based drills as well as calamitous events."
