HOEPS SealThe Hampton Roads Planning District Commission (HRPDC), with support from the Hampton Roads Metropolitan Medical Response System (HRMMRS), hosted the Healthcare Organization Emergency Preparedness Seminars (HOEPS) in May focused on emergency planning and preparedness for nursing homes, assisted living facilities and group homes. This regional event has become a highly anticipated annual training for facilities across Hampton Roads. This year attendees were addressed by keynote speaker, Dr. Barb Bisset, Director of the Emergency Services Institute at WakeMed in Raleigh, NC.

The seminar also included presentations on:

  • Eastern Virginia Healthcare Coalition
  • Virginia Department of Health’s Long Term Care Resiliency Working Group
  • Incident Command System: Putting it to work in your facility
  • Information Sharing and Regulatory Waivers During and After a Disaster
  • Logistics Planning Essentials
