Center for Medicare & Medicaid Emergency Preparedness Requirements (Final Rule) Program

Resilience International Consultants can provide complete review of existing plans and implementation of new plans that will ensure any facility is in compliance with the new CMS Emergency Preparedness Rule as detailed in a  U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) document.


Resilience can enhance your facility plans or work with y our staff to create all required documents from start to finish. When the Emergency Operations Plan (including the Communication Plan) is complete, Resilience will conduct a Tabletop exercise that will test the final Plan and provide training to facility staff. Upon completion of the project, the facility will be in compliance with the new CMS Emergency Preparednes Rule:




Resilience can review, maintain or create the following:

  1. Emergency plan—Develop an emergency plan based on a risk assessment and using an “allhazards” approach, which will provide an integrated system for emergency planning that focuses on capacities and capabilities.
  2. Policies and procedures—Develop and implement policies and procedures based on the emergency plan and risk assessment that are reviewed and updated at least annually. For hospitals, Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs), and Long-Term Care (LTC) facilities, the policies and procedures must address the provision of subsistence needs, such as food, water and medical supplies, for staff and residents, whether they evacuate or shelter in place.
  3. Communication plan—Develop and maintain an emergency preparedness communication plan that complies with federal, state and local laws.  Patient care must be coordinated within the facility, across healthcare providers, and with state and local public health departments and emergency management systems to protect patient health and safety in the event of a disaster.
