Health Care Provider Guidance

For private physician practices and clinics there are several ways you can help after a disaster in your community. First you must make sure your regular patients can be cared for. History shows people who are injured in a disaster are most likely going to try to go to the doctor or clinic they know. After you have a plan for what to do about your regular patients, then you can think about how you can help the larger community.
