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.
