Researchers present simulation model to investigate hospital responsiveness to mass casualty incidents
from Society for Disaster Medicine and Public Health via News-Medical.net
A community's ability to cope with mass casualty incidents is very dependent on the capacity and capability of its hospitals for handling a sudden surge of patients requiring resource-intensive and specialized needs. In a recent paper published by the Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness journal, authors Mersedeh TariVerdi, Elise Miller-Hooks from George Mason University, and Thomas Kirsch, from National Center for Disaster Medicine and Public Health, presented a whole-hospital simulation model to replicate medical staff, resources and space to investigate hospital responsiveness to MCIs.
