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. They also reference the Joint Commission's hospital emergency preparedness standards that require hospitals to participate in community-wide response for resource coordination and allocation.
