What is a hazard vulnerability assessment?
A hazard vulnerability analysis is a process for identifying the hospital’s highest vulnerabilities to natural and man-made hazards and the direct and indirect effect these hazards may have on the hospital and community. Hospitals should document a review of their HVA every year and share it with the community.
What are the 3 HVA risk categories?
HVAs can be broken down into categories of incidents for the organization to evaluate: Technological, Man Made & Naturally occurring incidents/hazards. Technological Examples: IT Failure, HVAC failure, Electrical Failure, Supply Shortage, etc.
What is a hazard vulnerability analysis used for?
Hazard vulnerability analysis (HVA) and risk assessment are systematic approaches to identifying hazards or risks that are most likely to have an impact on a healthcare facility and the surrounding community. Conducting a risk assessment / HVA is also a requirement in the CMS Emergency Preparedness Rule.
What is an HVA and why is conducting this assessment so important to preparedness?
The HVA provides a systematic approach to recognizing hazards that may affect demand for the hospitals services or its ability to provide those services. The risks associated with each hazard are analyzed to prioritize planning, mitigation, response and recovery activities.
What are the 4 main types of vulnerability?

This phase includes any activities that prevent an emergency, reduce the likelihood of occurrence, or reduce the damaging effects of unavoidable hazards. Mitigation activities should be considered long before an emergency. These actions reduce the danger and damaging effects of fire.
What is rapid need assessment?
A rapid needs assessment involves carrying out primary and secondary research quickly to gain an understanding of key information that can steer program design and implementation. Primary research is firsthand data, gathered through the direct investigation of a topic or situation of interest.
