Management of Mass Casualties Due to COVID-19 Handling the Dead

Petrone, P., Joseph, D., Jacquez, R., et al. (2021). Management of Mass Casualties Due to COVID-19: Handling the Dead. European Journal of Trauma and Emergency Surgery. 47(5):1343-1349.
The authors share how Body Collection Points (BCP) (temporary refrigeration units used to handle decedents when hospital morgues reach capacity during a disaster or pandemic) were used during the COVID-19 pandemic. Photos of various BCPs and a "COVID-19 death flowchart” illustrate promising practices for handling many decedents at once. The authors provide additional recommendations for management and encourage planning for future global disasters.
