Emergency and Disaster Management
This standard outlines the responsibilities of applicable health care organizations to reduce the risk of, prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies and disasters that occur inside or outside of the organization.
The standard guides the health care organizations and systems in engaging with internal and external stakeholders to identify and reduce risks related to emergencies and disasters, and to prepare for a coordinated, community-centred, and systems based
response and recovery.
This standard is intended for health care organizations, including health systems, that provide facility-based acute care services. These organizations, in addition to their continued duty of care to patients and clients, may be required to provide health services to casualties during and following an emergency or disaster.
