Hospital Disaster Staffing If You Call Will They Come

Cone, D. and Cummings, C. (2020). Hospital Disaster Staffing: If You Call, Will They Come? (Abstract only.) American Journal of Disaster Medicine. 14(4):237-245.
The authors surveyed health care staff to understand their willingness to work during and after a disaster. They found that 87% of respondents were willing to work after a mass casualty incident, though less were willing to work after a human-caused disaster when compared with a natural disaster. Conflicting emergency response obligations may also be a factor in whether health care workers are able to report to work after a large-scale emergency.
