Glenn Beck’s Hospital Video Should Put Every Hospital On Alert

Could it have come at a worse time?

Both political parties want to muck around in the business of health care. Every candidate has the solution and frankly no hospital or medical provider right now wants to be above the radar and yet conservative radio talk show host Glenn’s Beck’s butt surgery made You Tube and the national press and all the media, bloggers and pundits are having a field day with it.

This incident highlights the very reason every organization must have a crisis management plan in place and have the necessary training and resources to implement it.

Young and inexperienced staff need to be trained and practiced and seasoned veterans need to be practiced and reminded of the principles of crisis management.
