  • Lecture Seminar:  Evacuate or Shelter-in-Place? Decision-Making for Hospitals During Hurricane Sandy

    Description: Extreme weather events, such as hurricanes, can disrupt how healthcare services are delivered by damaging the infrastructure they depend upon. Natural disasters can necessitate evacuation. However, evacuation is not without risk. Meghan McGinty will present her dissertation research on legal preparedness for disasters and how decisions to either evacuate or shelter-in-place (continue serving patients on site) hospitals were made during Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Ms. McGinty will share recommendations about how we can better prepare healthcare facilities for future extreme weather events.
