Heath Care Aides in a Disaster

6330915?1289151357
One of the most important problems in na disaster involves the care of an elderly disabled relative who depends on the presence of a health care aide. Suddenly the hurricane hits and the aide does not show up.  You've got a plan form no water, one for no electricity. But do you know how to operate the enteral feeding machine that is attached to that peg? Can you handle taking care of the person's hygiene?

This is a difficult problem. I arranged for a friendly physician who has a large practice (a small hospital actually) a half-mile away to take care of the little one I was responsible for in such an eventuality.

I'm not sure what your answer should be, but think about this.
