The AHRQ Hospital Surge Model estimates the resources needed in your hospital(s) to treat casualties resulting from specific biological, chemical, nuclear, or radiological scenarios. For the selected scenario, the model estimates the number of casualties and the required hospital resources to treat the casualties. NOTE: The Hospital Surge Model went out of existence when its support contract ended on September 30, 2011 but the assumptions for the different threats may be helpful.
