ABSTRACT

Creating Makeshift Morgues in Hospitals During A Major Emergency   [open pdf - 52KB]

In the event of a major medical emergency, hospital administrators should consider using remote, isolated, or unused spaces in their facilities as makeshift morgues. Temperatures in these rooms can be set very low and air conditioning systems fully engaged to facilitate the proper handling of the deceased. In addition, transportation and traffic plans to and from these areas would need to be revisited and redesigned to allow for easy transfer of the deceased.
