During a disease outbreak, temporary health care centers may be opened to care for the sick. The centers might also be opened during a natural disaster to treat the wounded.
Some people who come to the centers will receive an assessment and be released with instructions for care. Others will require further care and will be treated for several hours or days at the health care center or a nearby hospital.
Signs can help people check in and out of the centers, move people through efficiently and help the clinical areas run smoothly.
