Hospital Employee Willingness to Work during Earthquakes Versus Pandemics
Charney, R., Rebmann, T. and Flood, R. (2015). Hospital Employee Willingness to Work during Earthquakes Versus Pandemics. The Journal of Emergency Medicine. 49(5):665-74.
The authors surveyed 1,822 hospital employees (clinical and non-clinical) to determine willingness to work during an earthquake versus a pandemic. They found that willingness to work may be increased by considering care for dependent family members, and by providing greater worker protection, cross training, and job importance education for staff.
