Checklist for Infection Control Concerns when Reopening Healthcare Facilities Closed Due to Extensive Water and Wind DamagePrior to opening a healthcare facility that has undergone extensive water and wind damage, inspections need to be conducted to determine if the building is salvageable. If the decision is made to proceed with recovery and remediation, building and life safety inspections must be completed before any restoration work is done to the facility. Parts I – IV describe those activities that need to be completed. Parts V – VII provide guidance for infection control review of facilities to be done before the hospital can reopen.

Regional Resilience Research and Policy BriefThis paper has been prepared by the Rural Policy Research Institute’s (RUPRI) Rural Futures Lab at the request of the National Association of Development Organizations (NADO) Research Foundation. Its purpose is to provide a translation of the extensive research literature on resilience and to provide a framework for assessing current policy and practice as it relates to regional resilience. Taking a resilience approach requires extending beyond emergency responsiveness to planning and organizing in advance of a disaster to address vulnerabilities and to enable rebuilding afterwards in ways that offer healthier, sustainable communities and more robust regional economies.
