Title: The Hospital’s role within a regional disaster response: A Comparison study of an urban hospital versus a rural hospital
Author: Alshehri, Ali
Abstract: The goal of this research is to evaluate the hospital's role in a regional disaster response. It focuses on identifying the level of the hospital's preparedness and its response to disasters and includes a comparison study between an urban and a rural hospital in New York state. The findings of this work show some differences between the urban and rural hospitals in terms of their capabilities and available resources and the effect of the community infrastructures on their preparedness. Both hospitals have similarities in the way participants view the hospital's role during a regional disaster response. It is noted that the urban hospital has more resources, a better geographical location, staff, medical centers, equipment, and supply management.
