Emergency Preparedness: States are Planning for Medical Surge, but Could Benefit from Shared Guidance for Allocating Scarce Medical Resources
Cynthia A. Bascetta (au)
Potential terrorist attacks and the possibility of naturally occurring disease outbreaks have raised concerns about the ďsurge capacityĒ of the nationís health care systems to respond to mass casualty events. This report identified 4 key components of preparing for a medical surge: (1) increasing hospital capacity; (2) identifying alternate care sites; (3) registering medical volunteers; and (4) planning for altering established standards of care. The author was asked to examine: (1) what assistance the fed. govít. has provided to help states prepare for medical surge; (2) what states have done to prepare for a medical surge; and (3) concerns states have identified related to medical surge. Includes recommendations. Charts and tables.
