Ozarks Medical Center promotes an active safety program for your protection
and conducts fire and disaster drills regularly. If a drill occurs while
you are here, remain in your room and do not become alarmed. Follow the
nurses' instructions during these drills.
In the event of a tornado watch or warning, the switchboard operator will
notify staff, visitors and patients over the paging system. In the event
of a tornado warning, each department will institute a specific department
tornado policy, designed for optimum patient safety.
Ozarks Medical Center also has hospital-wide and department-specific policies
and action plans in the event of an earthquake or other natural disaster.
