The Consequence module is completed in two parts: first, you are asked to estimate the size of certain populations (staff, patients, etc.) that could be affected and the potential property loss and business interruption costs that could be incurred should any disruption in operations occur (Consequence of Loss or Disruption); second, you will select a specific threat or hazard and provide estimates of the extent of disruption that would result from that specific event (Hazard- Specific Consequences). Should either the first or second component of consequence describe a smaller population or a minimal extent of damage or loss, then the subsequent Consequence score will be low. For example, the tool asks what the total average population at any given time at the hospital is. If that total population is one of the smaller selectable options in the tool, even if the selected hazard to assess for Hazard-Specific Consequences disrupts the facility’s operations for an extended period, the impacted population is still small, and, thus, the calculated Consequence Rating remains low.
