Long-Term Care: Resources for emergency preparedness and everyday communication

Long‐term care facilities offer a high level of care on a 24‐hour basis, so you have many of the same continuity‐of‐operations needs as a traditional hospital — with the unique responsibility of caring for long-term residents. Your administrators and staff need fast, flexible communication options to manage continuous changes in operational and patient needs as well as keep residents aware and informed as severe weather and other emergent events unfold.
