Prehospital Preparedness for Pediatric Mass-Casualty Events
Steve, S., Rebecca, L., Rhonda, D., et al. (2007). Prehospital Preparedness for Pediatric Mass-Casualty Events. (Abstract only.) Pediatrics. 120(4).
The authors examined the preparedness levels of U.S. emergency medical services agencies specific to the care of children who are involved in mass-casualty events. Less than 15% reported pediatric-specific mass casualty plans, and while almost 70% reported participating in local disaster drills within the past year, fewer than half of those drills included pediatric victims.
