ABSTRACT

Surge Hospitals: Providing Safe Care in Emergencies [2020]   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "This publication provides information to health care planners at the community, state, and federal level about what surge hospitals are, the kind of planning they require, how they can be set up, and who should be responsible for their establishment and operation. The case studies at the end of this paper describe how surge hospitals along the Gulf Coast were established and operated, providing a real-life perspective on the importance of creating safe surge hospitals after disasters strike as well as on the challenges that go along with providing care under these makeshift conditions."
