Ensuring the Safety of Vulnerable Patients During Hurricane Ian

When Hurricane Ian battered the state of Florida in 2022, Family First Homecare faced the daunting task of ensuring their electricity-dependent patients were safe, accounted for, and receiving life-sustaining care.

In part two of our 2023 hurricane preparedness series, Beth Harbold, Director of Quality Assurance and Emergency Management, explains that fast and personalized two-way communication was essential for patient safety and continuity of care before, during, and after the storm.

Listen to learn how she:

  • Tailored emergency messages to improve response rates
  • Collaborated with teams in other states to reach every single patient
  • Implemented lessons learned into their hurricane response plan
