Emergency Preparedness Checklist for Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Facilities and Group Homes (PDF)


The Montgomery County Advanced Practice Center has developed an emergency preparedness checklist for Nursing Homes, Assisted Living Facilities, and Group Homes. This checklist is designed to ensure that health care facilities are not only well prepared but also able to shelter-in-place and remain self-sufficient during a variety of emergencies.

This tool is designed to assist in the following topic areas:

  • Emergency preparedness training, planning, and assessment
  • Annual quality-of-care surveys;
  • Follow-up inquiries and consultation; and
  • Contacting facility administrators during actual emergencies.

Although licensing and quality standards vary by jurisdiction, public health professional and local, state, and federal regulators can view the checklist as a template that is readily adaptable to their needs and uses.
