The most recent TechNation Webinar Wednesday session “Recovering from Natural Disaster: How to Prepare Your Department and Get it Back Up and Running” was sponsored by Universal Medical (UMRi). The webinar was eligible for 1 CE credit from the ACI.
UMRi Senior Product Manager Craig Diener, who has over 23 years of experience in nuclear medicine including 19 with an OEM in multiple capacities, and UMRi National Service Manager Craig Snodgrass, who has 15 years of nuclear medicine knowledge and technical experience in the field, presented the webinar. They discussed an overview of environmental/natural disaster concerns, expert recommendations on how to prepare a department/clinic for unexpected natural disasters, what to do after the occurrence of a disastrous event and how to have a proper support/service plan in place.
The webinar was popular with almost 200 attendees and a high rating from those who signed in for the live presentation.
“The webinar on disaster recovery and preparedness was top notch,” Biomed Keith M. wrote in his post-webinar survey.
“Thank you for stressing the importance of preparing for a disaster before it happens rather than reacting to one that has already happened,” Biomed George S. shared.
“As someone who had to deal with the post-hurricane recovery in Houston, this webinar was a good reflection on how our response compares with the industry, what we could’ve done better, and some things we wouldn’t have thought of,” Imaging Specialist Ryan M. wrote.
“I appreciated that the presenters not only addressed major disasters but also those that can occur within your facility such as sprinklers going off, broken pipes, or leaking roofs. Not all disasters are created by mother nature,” Biomed John W. wrote.
“I am always impressed with the quality and amount of information that these webinars provide in such a short time,” Biomed Brian F. said.
“These classes are phenomenal! So much useful information for the hospital biomedical technician,” Biomed Linda R. wrote in her survey.
“Webinar Wednesdays are valuable resource to learn about current topics that affect clinical engineering. I really look forward to the webinars and thoroughly enjoy them,” wrote Biomed Engineering Manager Glen H.
