A recent poll on HEALTHCARE DESIGN asked:

How significantly is disaster planning taken into account in your designs to be prepared for events like the tragedy in Haiti?

60.00% - We always take disaster planning into account when designing a facility

40.00% - We only plan for disasters in high-risk regions or where dictated by local governments/regulations

0.00% - We rarely, if ever, take disaster planning into account

COMMENTS

- We plan for local storm disasters because our client base has accessibility issues that complicate seeking shelter.
