Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities: Planning and Decision Making for Sheltering in Place or Evacuation
In this article, the authors specifically address the challenges faced by long-term-care providers in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and continuing-care retirement communities as they decide whether "to stay or go"—evaluating risk to residents from potential evacuation, weighing storm path and intensity projections, and reviewing their emergency preparedness plans. The authors also discuss specific examples of states that have improved their integration of these nursing homes into overall community disaster management plans.
