From superstorm, lessons for healthcare providers
New Jersey healthcare officials and providers held a roundtable briefing at Jersey Shore Medical Center on Thursday to discuss professional preparedness for disasters. High on the list of post-Sandy concerns are coordination and communication. Hurricane Sandy should provide lessons in emergency response for years to come. "I see this as another opportunity for learning and seeing how we can prepare best for next year's season, or even the rest of this winter," said state Health Commissioner Mary E. O'Dowd, who attended the session.
