ABSTRACT

Emergency Management: Using Public Messages to Direct Patients with Non-Critical Needs Away from Hospitals   [open pdf - 54KB]

"During large-scale disasters, emergency managers should establish shelters and alternative care sites. Public information officers (PIOs) should use public messages to direct patients with non-critical needs away from hospitals and to these facilities. This will insure that non-urgent care needs are met, while preserving hospital resources for emergency and urgent care."
