California earthquakes highlight need to make evacuation decisions quickly

Hospitals face threats from cybersecurity as well as natural disasters, depending on their region. Snowfall in Buffalo, hurricanes in coastal cities, tornadoes in midwestern states, and earthquakes in California and Washington State all pose challenges to hospitals and patient safety. Ridgecrest Regional in California, for example, had to evacuate due to broken water pipes despite having a structurally sound building designed to withstand earthquakes. New technology, such as the OasisPlus app, is being developed to provide real-time reports and help hospitals respond to earthquakes more effectively. Planning and preparedness are key for hospitals to ensure patient and staff safety during natural disasters.
