HOSPITAL SAFETY INDEX GUIDE FOR EVALUATORS
It is the second edition of hospital safety index, first published in 2008. The Hospital Safety Index occupies a central place in local, national and global efforts to prove the functioning of hospitals in emergencies and disasters. This is an area that the World Health Organization (WHO) has promoted and supported for more than 25 years. A community must be able to protect the lives and well-being of the affected population, particularly in the minutes and hours immediately following impact or exposure. The ability of health services to function without interruption in these situations is a matter of life and death. The continued functioning of health services relies on a number of key fac¬tors, namely: that health services are housed in structures which are able to face all types of hazards; medical equipment is in good working order and is protected from damage; community infrastructure and critical services (such as water, electricity etc.) are available to support the health services; and health personnel are able to provide medical assistance in safe and secure settings when they are most needed. In 2005, at the 2nd World Conference for Disaster Reduction in Kobe, Japan agreed to safe hospital. A safe hospital provides continuous services to all in disaster and emergency condition..
