Health care facilities can face severe and lasting consequences from catastrophic events and public health emergencies, whether within or outside the facility. A multidisciplinary Emergency Management Program includes senior and operational leaders within the facility. This supplement focuses on the roles of two leaders—the Facility Engineer and the Infection Preventionist—and how they can collaborate in all mitigation, preparation, response, and recovery stages. The guide provides links and references to informative resources and procedures and complements the ASHE Emergency Management Playbook.
