OIG Releases Emergency Response Toolkits

OIG released two toolkits summarizing lessons learned from OIG reports on emergency preparedness and response published between 2002 and 2004 . The first toolkit addresses state and local actions during emergency events such as infectious disease outbreaks and natural disasters, and the second toolkit focuses on healthcare facility response during such events. While the evaluations referenced in the toolkits took place prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, OIG intends for this information to assist communities and healthcare facilities in responding to the current pandemic.
