Abir, M., Jan, S., Jubelt, L., et al. (2013). The Impact of a Large-Scale Power Outage on Hemodialysis Center Operations. (Abstract only.) Prehospital and Disaster Medicine. 28(6): 543-6.

The authors surveyed 90 dialysis centers in the areas adversely impacted by the June 29, 2012 mid-Atlantic storms that resulted in a large-scale power outage affecting up to three million people in multiple states. The objective of the study was to determine how power outage impacted operations in a sample of hemodialysis facilities in the impacted area. The study identified a number of best practices regarding back up power emergency planning and actions taken to ensure continuity of care for their vulnerable populations.
