Adalja, A. A., Watson, M., Bouri, N. et al. (2014). Absorbing Citywide Patient Surge during Hurricane Sandy: A Case Study in Accommodating Multiple Hospital Evacuations. Annals of Emergency Medicine. 64(1): 66-73.e1.
The authors used a qualitative, interview-based method to study medical surge strategies used at hospitals receiving patients from evacuated healthcare facilities during and after Hurricane Sandy. One gap noted was a challenge associated with the increase in the number of dialysis patients sent to hospitals.
