Prepared to Care: Boston Hospitals Rise to the Challenge

New Jersey hospitals and healthcare providers applaud our brethren in Boston for their amazing response to the terror attack during the Boston Marathon. Dr. Atul Gawande has penned a piece in the New Yorker that explains why Boston hospitals were prepared and ready. I recommend it for your reading.

Dr. Gawande points out that the readiness and preparedness the world witnesses is due to the cultural legacy of Sept. 11. Since then hospitals have implemented emergency  preparedness procedures and worked collaboratively with law enforcement, government at all levels and first responders. We have drilled and prepared. As Dr. Gawande so eloquently puts it, Boston was ready.
