A Study of Disaster Preparedness of Rural Hospitals in the United States

The author used a model of disaster preparedness to examine seven elements of preparedness. She also examined risk perception and Health Resources and Services Administration funding. She categorized rural hospitals as "moderately prepared overall" with high preparedness in education/training isolation/decontamination. Respondents perceived higher risk from natural disasters and vehicular accidents than from human-caused incidents.
