Remember What to Do in Tornado

September 12, 2018

We could expect tornado warnings through the course of the storm. Just a reminder, if an overhead tornado warning is issued, move patients that are medically able to move to an interior hallway, away from windows. Those who aren’t safe to move should be covered with a blanket. Belongings, particularly shoes, should be placed on their beds. This was a lesson learned from the hospital struck by a tornado in Joplin. Many patients had foot injuries after trying to walk on broken glass.
