The hospital that bears the name of the most destructive Southern California earthquake in recent years has no excuse to be unprepared, said Susan Shamban, disaster coordinator for Northridge Hospital Medical Center.
"We did survive the Northridge Earthquake," Shamban said. "We were fortunate at that time that the hospital was built over the standards of that time. We didn't have injuries to patients or staff."
