Emergency Planning for the Client/Patient
This page has been provided by Mandell's Clinical Pharmacy to help you plan your actions in case there is a natural disaster where you live. Many areas of the United States are prone to natural disasters like hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and
Every client/patient receiving services should think about what they would do in the event of an emergency. Our goal is to help you plan so that we can try to provide you with the best, most consistent service we can during the emergency.
Know What to Expect
If you have recently moved to this area, take the time to find out what types of natural emergencies have occurred in the past, and what types might be expected.
Find out what, if any, time of year these emergencies are more prevalent.
Find out when you should evacuate, and when you shouldn’t.
Your local Red Cross, local law enforcement agencies, local news and radio stations usually provide excellent information and tips for planning.
Know Where to Go
One of the most important pieces of information you should know is the location of the closest emergency shelter.
These shelters are opened to the public during voluntary and mandatory evacuation times. They are usually the safest place for you to go, other than a friend or relative’s home in an unaffected area.
Know What to Take with You
If you are going to a shelter, there will be restrictions on what items you can bring with you. Not all shelters have adequate storage facilities for medications that need refrigeration.
We recommend that you call ahead and find out which shelter in your area will let you bring your medications and medical supplies, in addition, let them know if you will be using medical equipment that requires an electrical outlet.
An Ounce of Prevention...
We would much rather prepare you for an emergency ahead of time than wait until it has happened and then send you the supplies you need.
To do this, we need for you to give us as much information as possible before the emergency. We may ask you for the name and phone number of a close family member, or a close friend or neighbor. We may ask you where you will go if an emergency occurs. Will you go to a shelter, or a relative’s home? If your doctor has instructed you to go to a hospital, which one is it?
- Get a cooler and ice or freezer gel-packs to transport your medication.
- Get all of your medication information and teaching modules together and take them with you if you evacuate.
- Pack one week’s worth of supplies in a plastic-lined box or waterproof tote bag or tote box. Make sure the seal is
- Make sure to put antibacterial soap and paper towels into your supply kit.
- If possible, get waterless hand disinfectant from a local store. It comes in very handy if you don’t have running water.
- If you are going to a friend or relative’s home during evacuation, leave their phone number and address with Mandell's Clinical Pharmacy.
- When you return to your home, contact Mandell's Clinical Pharmacy so we can see what supplies you need.
