Our organization was in need of an expert, and that’s who we found. Evelyn Burruss’ plans have undergone successful reviews by TJC, CMS, and CDPH. Evelyn combines her decades of expertise with an action oriented approach to solutions to a suite of Emergency Management issues. When working with Evelyn, you quickly come to realize that the safety of the patient and your staff are paramount in her thinking. She provided us with plug-and-play templates of the most vital portions of our written plans, and taught me (a total EM greenhorn) the way that an organization should assess and address the hazards that affect healthcare organizations in this day and age. Her expertise in interacting with community stakeholders, all levels of government, and the EMS system provides organizations with great knowledge on how to reach out and connect with the resources around them. Evelyn’s feather in her cap is her network of colleagues and consultants from all walks of healthcare, emergency management, and safety. If she doesn’t have an answer for your specific issue, she knows someone who does.
During the past several years, I have had the distinct privilege of working with Mrs. Burruss in both the Public Health and Non-Profit Healthcare arenas. She has assisted these organizations and me with comprehensive development of Emergency Preparedness Programs. This included the development of organizational emergency operations centers (EOCs) facility design, information management systems, Emergency Operations Plans, Staff Training, all levels of exercises and live support during emergencies. Each task was tackled with high energy and exceptional subject matter knowledge. The work products and results were stellar. Mrs. Burruss is a consummate professional with an endless wealth of knowledge of Emergency Management and Healthcare Operations.
We worked with Evelyn to develop a comprehensive emergency management plan for our organization. She was thorough and a content expert. She continues to be available for us when we have questions. Great customer service. We are confident that we are fully prepared for the new CMS regulations.
