Patient and Caregiver Emergency Planning

It’s important to have a plan for events like hurricanes and other natural disasters.  Please consider the following has you prepare for Hurricane Irma:

  • If you are in the path of the storm, we advise that you seek temporary shelter with a friend, family member, or community shelter before the storm.
  • Advanced Home Care does not provide emergency services, such as ambulance, rescue, fire or police. At any time if you are in danger, call 911.
  • If you need electric powered medical equipment and/or oxygen notify your power company before an emergency and let them know you are at high risk during power outages.
  • If you lose power, and your medical equipment needs electricity, go to a hospital or shelter at once.
  • Have enough food, water, medicine, and medical supplies to last 3 to 5 days without help from others.
  • Store your supplies in a waterproof container that is easy for you to open.
  • Have a charged cell phone, battery powered radio, and flashlight with fresh batteries.
  • Have a list of important phone numbers (i.e., your physician, your family members, your neighbors, etc.) to take with you.
  • Keep an up-to-date list of the medicines you are taking and pharmacy number.
  • Keep important documents, both personal and financial, in a waterproof container that you can take with you. This should include your Medical Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment form and/or advance directives.
  • Make a communication plan with family and friends in case you are separated.
  • Keep food, water and medicines on hand for pets and make plans for their safe shelter and care.
  • Know the emergency plan for your area including evacuation routes, shelters, and emergency numbers.
  • Keep your car full of gas with directions to the nearest shelter or evacuation route.
  • If you need to evacuate – call your homecare provider/agency right away. Tell the agency of your plan/shelter site. Bring your Medicare, Medicaid, and/or insurance card with the other things listed above.
