If Disaster Strikes, How Prepared Is Your Medical Office?

You have only to watch the news to be disturbed by the number of weather-related disasters that seem to be plaguing not only the United States but the world. The massive out-of-control wildfires in the West, devastating flooding in the South and Northeast, killer tornadoes in the Midwest and hurricanes in the Gulf and Atlantic don’t merely seem to be more numerous and more severe, weather experts say they are. Global warming is affecting jet stream and weather patterns more often, more severely and sooner than meteorologists expected. And experts say it’s only going to get worse.

In the past year, hurricane Sandy, massive long-term flooding, a record tornado season and a record fire season have disaster responders concerned that disaster resources may not be able to keep up with the help and relief needed. If your medical office hasn’t already instituted a comprehensive disaster recovery plan, it’s time to put it at the top of your to-do list.

No one knows when disaster will strike. People panic in emergency situations. Implementing a disaster recovery solution that features a live answering service in times of emergency ensures that they will reach a thinking person who can direct them to aid, alert disaster response authorities if necessary and keep track of patient emergencies that need your attention until your office is back up and running.
