It can be hard to go outside for EM assistance when you don’t know the people who will be coming in. HSS EM Solutions did a great job conducting a mock Joint Commission review of our EM program, making suggestions where needed, and performing a very beneficial tabletop exercise. It was nice to have someone do this exercise with our staff other than me. I then could be an observer instead of a resource."Elisa Stott, Network Emergency Preparedness Coordinator/Safety Manager, Community Hospitals of Indianapolis
Grants are available only when hospitals have accurate documentation, thorough EM plans, and good working relationships with local grantors.

We realized we needed outside help from a professional who knew the ins and outs of emergency management and how incident command systems work."Dave Willower, Safety Officer, Community Hospital, Grand Junction, Colo.

[Our TJC reviewer] had only glowing remarks for our plan, our disaster critiques, and our whole process. He said our critique form was the best model he had ever seen. He did not have one recommendation for us!
