Emergency Operations Plan Development Guide and Template for Extended Care Facilities
South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control. (2013). Emergency Operations Plan Development Guide and Template for Extended Care Facilities.
This South Carolina-focused template was developed to support emergency operations planning for licensed nursing or assisted living facilities. It includes base plan information, as well as a series of checklists for policies and procedures, and Job Action Sheet content. It may be referenced and customized by facilities, as appropriate. (Note that this template was created prior to the release of the 2016 Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services [CMS] Emergency Preparedness [EP] Rule, which planners should reference to ensure compliance for their organizations.)
