Earthquakes are a serious threat to hospital safety and pose a significant potential liability to hospital administrators and healthcare organizations. Hospital buildings in 39 states are vulnerable to earthquake damage. Unsafe existing buildings expose healthcare organizations to risks such as death and injury of patients, doctors, nurses and staff; damage to or collapse of buildings; damage to and loss of furnishings, equipment, and other building contents; disruption of patient care and other hospital operations and loss of an indispensable community resource.
This course is based on the document Incremental Seismic Rehabilitation of Hospital Buildings, FEMA 396, December 2003.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
