Hospital disaster planning is the responsibility of the administration, the nursing staff, and the medical staff. A good hospital disaster plan should be coordinated with community organizations and should provide an organized response for the management of casualties transported to the hospital from the disaster site. Finally, it should take into account disasters arising within or near the hospital that require hospital evacuation.
Staff members perform most efficiently when they are performing relatively familiar tasks. The disaster plan should therefore rely on standard operating procedures as much as possible. Key functions of the hospital plan are listed in Ta.b.Je,,5:.2.
