Charney, R., Rebmann, T. and Flood, R. (2015). Hospital Employee Willingness to Work during Earthquakes Versus Pandemics. (Abstract only.) 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.
