Disaster Utilities Supplies Planning Template for Hospitals

UN-Habitat has carried out the initial assessment of the Mandalay General Hospital for non-structural hazards to work towards keeping the hospital functional in a post-earthquake scenario. This assessment included: 1) critical medical equipment in various departments such as the emergency department, operating room, intensive care units, radiology, endoscopy, medical record rooms, pathology labs, and so on; and 2) critical utilities such as power, water, and medical gas supplies, among others. The assessment aims to understand the effects of future earthquake events in these critical areas of the hospital, the hazards in each location, and the effects if the hazards materialize.
