Yes, the recent hurricane business, in which hurricane Dorian came uncomfortably close to moving through and damaging my state of Florida, prompted me to look into the matter of hospital planning for evacuations.
One hopes that the hospitals in the Bahamas had such plans in effect and were able to implement them successfully.
Even a modest websearch does turn up a good bit of information on this topic, which is reassuring that hospitals do take this seriously, with a good number of detailed plans from specific hospitals available for review.
Such plans usually seem to be combined with disaster plans, and while form and content may vary from place to place, there are, as would be expected, common elements in such plans.
This Youtube video is brief, but seems to cover the primary ones: https://www.msn.com/en-ca/video/news/how-hospitals-evacuate-patients-in-an-emergency/vi-bbpveju
Here are some good visuals on the subject:https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=hospital+emergency+evacuation&qpvt=hospital+emergency+evacuation&form=igre
Curiously, I was unable to find a national published standard, as from an accrediting agency, that lays out a suggested standard framework for evacuation plans, but it would seem that all hospitals do have disaster and evacuation plans in one form or another.
It would seem unlikely that any of us as patients will ever become involved in a hospital evacuation, but you never know.
But it's good to realize that virtually every hospital does have some kind of plan in place for disasters and evacuations, and hopefully its staff have been sufficiently well trained to carry them out if necessary.
