Change is one thing you can count on in the ever-changing role of the emergency management coordinator.

Whether you are a safety officer or an emergency management coordinator, you undoubtedly feel the pressure from The Joint Commission's revamped emergency management standards and the creation of the new 'EM' chapter in 2009.

Evolving hospital roles and updated Joint Commission standards mean only one thing, the role of emergency management if more important than ever. You must maintain patient and staff safety, protect your facility, and meet accreditation requirements.

The Emergency Management Coordinator's Handbook for Hospitals is an affordable, easy-to-read reference that outlines the fundamental processes of emergency management and offers strategies on how to meet the latest standards and regulations.

It will help you:

- Build your emergency management program with a step-by-step fundamental guide
- Meet federal regulations and address The Joint Commission's emphasis on emergency management standards, including the six critical areas
- Train and communicate with staff
- Develop, conduct, and evaluate drills
- Create guidelines for keeping patients, staff, and the public safe during an emergency
- Achieve administrative buy-in for your emergency management program

Emergency managers know that you can't predict the future, but you can be prepared with strategies from the field and practical tips from expert authors Mary Russell, EdD, MSN, and Earl R. Williams, HSP.

The following are just a few of the tools you'll be able to use to bolster your emergency management program:

- Hazard Vulnerability Analysis Matrix
- Sample Mutual Aid Policy and Procedure
- Sample Hospital Resource Inventory
