Collective Response to Public Health Emergencies and Large-Scale Disasters Putting Hospitals at the Core of Community Resilience
Paturas, J., Smith, D., Smith, S., and Albanese, J. (2010). Collective Response to Public Health Emergencies and Large-Scale Disasters: Putting Hospitals at the Core of Community Resilience. (Abstract only.) Journal of Business Continuity and Emergency Planning. 4(3):286-95.
The authors discuss the use of an Emergency Support Function framework to manage surge capacity and eliminate the need for external staff to meet patient care needs during a disaster. They reference the Joint Commission's hospital emergency preparedness standards that require hospitals to participate in community-wide response for resource coordination and allocation, and emphasize how important it is for hospitals to remain open to support community resilience.
