Thanks to new technological innovations, hospitals in disaster areas can be equipped to better deliver care to patients in turbulent times. A drone-favoring concept has been put forth by Miami-based architecture and engineering office Leo A Daly.
The proposal concerns instances when roads are made inaccessible due to natural disasters such as hurricanes. These occurrences often make it quite difficult or even impossible for staff, family and suppliers to reach patients. As a result, Leo A Daly shares an idea that will allow resources to be taken directly to them.
The firm envisions hospitals in disaster areas to have drone ports on every window that will allow the tech to land and bring the resources to the patient. Other disaster-addressing features include a system of rainwater collection and photovoltaic panels for solar power.
