Living on the Gulf Coast and living thru Tropical Storm Allison, Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Ike has made our nursing staff more cognizant of the significance of disaster planning. This is an excellent guideline for staff to following in the event of any emergency - offering valuable patient as well as personal information to survive a disaster.
