Healthcare Emergency Preparedness

Healthcare facilities — hospitals, assisted living facilities, hospices, and similar establishments — must have a contingency plan in place in the event of a natural disaster or other crisis. One of the most important aspects of a contingency plan is food.

When disaster strikes, it’s crucial that healthcare facilities have a response plan that includes enough food on hand to feed their patrons. You need food that is easy to prepare — even with limited resources. You also want to make sure you feed patrons familiar, balanced meals to boost morale and ensure their nutritional needs are met. That’s where Easy Meal comes in.

Easy Meal Food Services’ disaster preparedness food solutions meet compliance with the government’s CMS emergency preparedness rules. Our meal plans are ideal for healthcare providers of any size, including but not limited to:

  • Hospitals
  • Assisted living centers
  • Nursing homes
  • Hospices
  • Drug rehabilitation facilities
  • Mental health clinics

Hospital disaster plan

In the event of a natural or man-made disaster, it’s imperative for hospitals, and other like healthcare facilities, to have an abundance of food that’s easy to make, even when resources are lacking. There needs to be a sufficient amount of food to not only sustain the patients, but the staff members as well.

Easy Meal’s food solutions are easy to prepare, requiring only boiling water to create homestyle, great-tasting, and nutritious meals that will comfort your residents in times of crisis. With a 10-year shelf life and a compact design, our freeze-dried meals are easy to store and will be ready when you need them most. Food is a large part of a disaster plan, but there are other supplies and requirements that are extremely important as well.
