This article addresses the mobile hospital that was set up in Louisville, MO after a tornado damaged the local hospital. It will remain operational until 2018 when construction of a new hospital is planned to be complete. It provides lessons learned from nurses and other staff managing the temporary hospital (e.g., showers should be wheelchair accessible, patients need more private rooms, and doctors require improved access to electronic medical records).
