Fire Destroys Home Care Office – Are you Ready for DIsaster?

The fire that devastated the Antietam Village Shopping Center in Frederick, Maryland nearly one year ago destroyed more than building materials.

For Adla Simms, a manager at Maxim Healthcare Services, the blaze took medical records.

“We even had to do all the employees screenings again, starting from scratch,” she said. “We lost the medical records for more than 30 home care patients, as well as all the other documents,” she said.

The 100 or so employees at the company had to start from application through background checks and more just to get back to work, she said.
