Don’t miss this 1 Hour: ‘Recalibrating Medical Facilities Amid Disasters,’ a 2-Part report from California and Oregon

From treating mass numbers of COVID-19 patients to evacuating facilities due to record-setting wildfires and then dealing with the aftermath of choking black smoke, West Coast medical facilities managers have had to be smart and nimble during the last nine months. Their facilities had to transition from pumping in massive amounts of fresh air to stop the spread of COVID to shutting that down rapidly when smoke threatened their patients. They had to convert emergency departments to respiratory triage areas and transition acute care spaces to ambulatory care. Could you and your facility adapt this rapidly and efficiently?
