    Hospital preparedness for large-scale illness has also been a major focus. Post 9/11, the Bush administration and future leaders have allocated increased funds to helping healthcare systems. This has meant purchasing more hospital beds and equipment, developing committees that discuss evidence-based protocols and procedures, and creating coalitions; partnerships between neighboring hospitals. Healthcare systems are required to practice mandatory drills, in which hospital communications staff announce a disaster, and volunteer patients arrive at the hospital and may be suspected of having been infected with smallpox or anthrax or Ebola.
