Hospital Pandemic Influenza Planning Checklist

This checklist should be used as one of several tools for evaluating current plans or in developing a comprehensive pandemic influenza plan.

An effective plan will incorporate information from state, regional, tribal and local health departments, emergency management agencies/ authorities, hospital associations and suppliers of resources. In addition, hospitals should ensure that their pandemic influenza plans comply with applicable state and federal regulations and with standards set by accreditation organizations. 

Comprehensive pandemic influenza planning can also help facilities plan for other emergency situations.
