EDITOR’S NOTE: With Hurricane Irma expected to impact Miami-County today, this story, updated from a news alert posted last week on the ICD10monitor website, offers lessons learned for hospitals and caregivers in the path of Irma.
Our thoughts continue to go out this week to the people of Texas, especially the first responders and caregivers and all who have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Harvey made landfall in Texas on August 25th as the strongest hurricane to hit the U.S. in more than a decade. Since Harvey’s landfall, southeast Texas has experienced catastrophic flooding, devastation of homes and loss of lives.
