The SNS is a pivotal tool in the event of a disaster.
Using the Internet, research SNS. Based on your understanding, respond to the following:
- List and explain the types of items a community hospital will require and seek from the SNS in the event of a disaster.
- List and explain at least two concerns you may have when forced to rely on this facility.
- During the creation of disaster plans, it is common and essential that neighboring hospitals work together. List and explain some of the problems that may arise from a disaster plan, which may be ten years old and involved all of the local community hospitals at the time it was originally designed.
Make sure that you include an introduction and conclusion to your post.
