Emergency Preparedness

Emergency Preparedness


Mass casualty events may arise as the result of natural disasters, terrorist acts, or accidents.  Our health care team helps clients prepare for the unknown by assisting with medical surge analyses and policies, disaster response plans, and disaster preparedness self-assessments, as well as regulatory analyses regarding such issues as capacity expansion during emergency situations. Our data security and breach analysis team also works with providers to develop data security and recovery strategies to prevent data loss in the event of a disaster.  We also assist providers in assessing compliance with Joint Commission requirements and recommendations for disaster preparedness.

Our team has the skill and experience to help your hospital or long-term care facility create the framework needed to respond to emergency situations.  If you need a trusted advisor to assist you with emergency preparedness, contact a team member for more information.


We have provided the following emergency preparedness services to clients in the past:

  • Prepared Emergency Preparedness Services Agreement regarding award of funds to local health departments in multiple counties for public health preparedness and response activities
  • Counseled long-term care providers regarding emergency preparedness requirements and suggested "best practices"
  • Assisted providers in complying with state-mandated disaster preparedness plan overview submissions
  • Assisted providers in crisis response to hurricanes and other natural disasters and terroristic threats

* Past success does not indicate the likelihood of success in any future legal representation.
