The United States recorded and reported 28 storms and other occurrences that fit the description of a natural disaster in 2013 alone. Studies found that most hospitals have out of date generators, which are often placed in poor locations, and many other factors that could lead to complications within the building.

These problems are made worse if the natural disaster shuts down the electricity in the region and issues with generators have raised some questions in regards to hospital safety problems during times of natural disaster.

Here is an infographic that looks at natural disasters and hospital safety in more detail.
