Ohio Team uses Joplin Hospital Disaster as Training

Joplin hospital struck by tornado causes Ohio hospital to look at its own disaster plan.

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

The EF-5 200 mph tornado that struck a direct hit on a hospital may provide some lessons learned, especially for a team of Toledo doctors, nurses, and an EMT who already have taken a critical look at evacuating a medical center quickly and efficiently. Their effort focused on going beyond the theoretical and provide a more practical approach when seconds and minutes matter most.
