ASHES Releases New Tool for Disaster Readiness
The American Society for Healthcare Environmental Services (ASHES)
of the American Hospital Association announces the sale of their newest publication, ASHES
Recommended Practice Series Two: Disaster Readiness and Recovery.
Environmental services departments are essential for maintaining hospital operations during an emergency situation. With that in mind, ASHES has developed a new recommended practice document that provides multi disciplinary guidance, particularly for environmental services departments on issues and concerns that arise during all phases of a disaster. Beginning with a national overview of government programs currently in place, this document covers the entire spectrum of a disaster; drilling down to aspects encountered by frontline workers. The tool can be used as a facility-wide step-by-step guide for disaster preparedness with an emphasis on cleaning for health, hygiene and safety.
This Recommended Practice was developed for ASHES by MEDLOG Inc. a private, veteran- owned consulting company dedicated to health care disaster preparedness and readiness enhancements.
