With various types of disasters seemingly becoming increasingly common across the United States and the world, including catastrophic hurricanes, wildfires, mudslides and volcanic eruptions, as well as terrorist attacks, healthcare providers have many reasons to be considering whether they are prepared for a disaster event. Community disasters pose special challenges for hospitals and other healthcare facilities given the functions they serve in communities. Counsel to providers with recent real-life experiences addressing these challenges have stories and insights to share, based on what they learned and what they wish they had known. This 3-part webinar series will provide current, real-life, “from the trenches” examples and analysis of the unexpected and challenging legal questions that arise for hospitals and other essential health care providers in preparation and response to disasters. It will include panelists who practice and represent clients in Puerto Rico, Hawaii, California, Florida, Texas, the Carolinas and other areas that have recently experienced large-scale disasters.

On-Demand+CLE Webinars

On-Demand Webinars

Offerings designated as “On-Demand" differ from those designated as “On-Demand+CLE" in that they are CLE-ineligible. However, CLE credit may be obtained by applying directly to the attorney's state accrediting body, but approval is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of said accrediting body and subject to its rules and regulations. Please refer to the Distance Learning CLE State for details regarding specific state guidelines.

AHLA On-Demand+CLE webinars are only approved for CLE credits unless otherwise stated. To obtain other credit types (Continuing Professional Education, Compliance Certification Board, Nursing Home Administrator, etc.) participants may apply directly their desired licensing body, but approval is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of said licensing body and subject to its rules and regulations.
