ABSTRACT
Two outpatient surgery programs learned lessons when an earthquake and a tornado hit unexpectedly. • Have your entire staff assist with whatever tasks may be necessary, including cleaning the ORs, running medications and other supplies, and treating minor injuries. • Hold annual preparedness exercises so your staff will know which people hold what responsibilities. • You may need help from your community in terms of volunteers to help with cleaning and recovery or delivery of linens, supplies, and food.
