Framework for healthcare emergency management is a four-stage system designed for the personnel responsible for development, implementation, maintenance and administration of emergency management programs and plans for healthcare facilities and systems. Currently there are four phases of emergency management like mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery. Preparedness is indeed the most sacrosanct goal and it includes several key elements or missions. The USA presidential policy directive outlines emergency preparedness and management efforts using independent mission areas-prevention, protection, mitigation, response and recovery.
