We all need to be pre­pared, but can’t let fear rule us

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

The San Bernardino, Calif., at­tack awoke all of us here in the U.S.A. to re­al­ize that ter­ror­ism will be a threat ev­ery day, every­where. We must not live in fear, but now must think about how to per­son­ally and pro­fes­sion­ally pre­pare should this hap­pen in our com­mu­ni­ties. Yes, hos­pi­tals, schools, gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials and build­ings have a “dis­as­ter plan” in place. Do each of us have one on the job and at home? As has been said, “There is a price for our free­dom.” How­ever, fear should not dom­i­nate.
