As Hurricane Sandy roared ashore just south of Atlantic City, NJ around 8:00 pm eastern time on Monday, the heroes of home health care and hospice across the region were in action executing their emergency preparedness plans.  Most agencies we know of have some form of plan to put into action in the event of a major catastrophe such as Sandy.

We will be bringing you the actual stories as we get details.  I’m writing this to you in early afternoon, about 18 hours into the storm. Power is out over much of the region, and emergency officials are still assessing the deaths and the damage.

Meanwhile, unseen by most folks, home health and hospice nurses have left the security of their own families to go out into their communities to care for their patients, assure safety, and in some cases make rescues.  If you have a personal story about how you and your agency responded to this disaster, please share it with us so that we can let the world know that home health and hospice are there for our patients and our communities.

Thanks to all of you who are out there serving.  We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
