From the hospital parking lot to the town center. From the school campus, the vacation resort, and the night club. From the Zika virus to lone shooters. From floods to fires. From hurricanes and earthquakes to terrorist attacks. Healthcare entities, local and state governments, emergency service agencies, community partners, and—especially lawyers, need to be alert, informed and prepared all day, every day. This panel is devoted to exploring all types of unplanned incidents and accidents, the responses to them, and any legal issues that may arise at the Federal, State/County, and Local levels. Acts of nature or intended aberrant behavior, much of what can and should be done—is already known. Too often, however, that knowledge comes from experience; which is usually the unintended consequence of a "surprise."
