Save the Date: Wednesday, October 6 is HCA’s Emergency Preparedness Conference 

Situation Report | September 13, 2021   

HCA’s Annual Emergency Preparedness Conference will take place virtually on Wednesday, October 6.   

As cases in COVID-19 and the Delta Variant continue to rise, and the state mandates home care, hospice and other health care personnel to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, agencies and hospices must review and increase their emergency preparedness protocols and activities.  

Don’t miss this important Emergency Preparedness Conference, which will cover a variety of emergency-related issues, including:  

  • An update on state and federal regulatory relief measures for home care and hospice providers; 
  • How to prepare for a cyber security attack;  
  • Ways to ensure compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration Emergency Temporary Standard Rule and New York’s HERO Act;  
  • Providers’ experiences with surveys during the pandemic; and  
  • A tabletop exercise to meet state and federal requirements. 

Please reserve Wednesday, October 6 on your calendar.  

Registration information will soon be available.
