Does organizational resilience provide the conditions for preparing hospitals against earthquakes?

Abdollah Shahdadnezhad


One of the problems that has always threatened the lives of human societies for many centuries is the occurrence of disasters and accidents that, in case of ignorance and lack of preparation, cause irreparable damage to various dimensions of human life, including residential, social, economic, environmental, psychological and so on.

Based on the results, organizational resilience can have a significant impact on the preparedness of hospitals for earthquakes and reducing casualties.
