Emergency Preparedness Program

SOUTHWEST HEALTHCARE SERVICES

Emergency Preparedness Program

 

Southwest Healthcare Services is committed to providing safe and secure conditions for residents/patients, visitors, and staff.  One means by which we accomplish this is to maintain an emergency response plan and implementing procedures following the guidance of available emergency preparedness resources.  Our facility has also established an Emergency Preparedness Committee (EPC) to meet these goals.

In the event of an emergency, the resident/patient and/or representative will be notified by whatever communication means is available at the time, which may include public broadcast.  You are encouraged to listen to the local radio and TV stations for updates as they become available.

If the emergency warrants moving our residents and patients to another location to protect resident and patient health and safety in the event of a disaster, resident/patient care will be well-coordinated within the facility, across healthcare providers, and with Health departments and emergency management agencies.
