The threat of bioterrorism is no longer theoretical; it is a reality. Your health care facility must prepare rapidly to meet this threat. The Bioterrorism Readiness and Response Sourcebook is a comprehensive resource prepared in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and the anthrax incidents in Florida, New York and Washington, DC.
In this critical reference, leading medical authorities detail how to meet the current challenge of bioterrorism in all its nefarious forms. You’ll find practical, authoritative and useful guidelines and information including:
- How health care facilities handled the recent attacks and are now preparing for bioterror.
- Preparedness guidance for such specialties as infection control, hospital employee health, emergency staff, primary care physicians, pharmacy and clinical labs.
- The latest recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and details of their plans to deploy at bioterror sites and administer stores of vaccine and antibiotics.
- New bioterrorism readiness plans for health care facilities, including a timely self-administered bioterrorism readiness survey by the American Hospital Association, and a checklist formatted for distribution and sign-off prepared by the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology
- And much more!
