On the other hand, one of the lessons- learned from hurricane Andrew as reported by the CIO of Ryder was that you should let the families of the duty staf shelter at the facility. Otherwise, the staff spends all their time frantic about their loved ones out in the aftermath and cannot adequately perform their job. The key is that you make sure ahead of time to provide for them, not bring everydony in and dial 1-800-SEND-FEMA.
Yeah. I disagreed with the doc on that. If families had not been there, she would have had even less help. I never understood why this happened. Why could they have not evacuated from the roof? Surely there was one helicopter that could have been assigned to this hospital.
