The attached Receiving Hospital Worksheet is designed to help Hospital Command Center staff determine available resources to receive different types of patients. Similar to the Evacuating Hospital Workbook, it has planning and response portions, with most of the work completed pre-event.

The Worksheet has utility from a system and jurisdictional perspective. For large health systems with multiple hospitals, health care coalitions, and geographic jurisdictions, completion of the planning portions of the worksheet can inform evacuation planning efforts.
