Go behind the scenes at UC San Diego as a five story mockup of a hospital, including a surgical suite, is subjected to dramatic earthquakes in order to better understand how the many complex systems within hospital buildings perform after earthquakes. Teaming up with the California Seismic Safety Commission, this UCSD-TV documentary explores the history of seismic safety for California's hospital infrastructure, and what is being done to secure its future.
