Questionnaire for Health Care Facilities

Administrator's Guide


To assess the readiness of hospitals and other health care facilities for chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) events, States, localities, and hospitals can use this functionally downloadable questionnaire. Some hospitals may address events such as these as a component of an "all hazards" plan. Select for other CBRNE information.

The Administrator's Guide is intended for the individual at the State or local health department or multi-hospital health care system who will be responsible for administering the questionnaire and analyzing the resulting data.

This project was funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and developed under Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) contract No. HHSA29020050005C.
