Hick, J., Nelson, J., Fildes, J., et al. (2020). Triage, Trauma, and Today’s Mass Violence Events. (References cited only.) Journal of the American College of Surgeons. 230(2): 251–256.
The authors explain the difference between conventional mass casualty incidents and mass violence incidents and how triage needs to adjust accordingly. They highlight the three key planning elements hospitals must consider to prepare for mass violence (space, staff, and supplies) and define steps hospital providers should take under primary, secondary, and tertiary trauma phases.
