SAFEHAVEN: Decision Support for Nursing Home Resident Disaster Evacuations

Director: John Logan
Research Theme: Environmental Resources and Population Wellbeing
Funding: NIA

Hurricanes have a devastating effect on nursing home residents, as they may be adversely affected either by being transferred to another setting or by sheltering in place. Using existing nursing-home data from multiple sources, Logan and his collaborator, Vincent Mor, seek to understand the consequences of hurricanes and evacuation decisions, providing the first evidence base to inform the creation of evacuation guidelines.
