Discussion Board Question Hospital Healthcare Issues Surge Capacity Amp Capability Triage Mass Fatality

Question Description

Overview

Hospitals and other healthcare facilities play a critical role in disaster and MCI response (Primary resource and CIKR). This week we will define an MCI, touch on triage, and talk about how hospitals go from day to day care to a situation that involves surge capacity and capability. This is closely linked with the concept of triage in all of its iterations, from mass triage at the scene, through casualty care and transportation, to allocation of scarce resources at definitive care hospitals. The discussion will focus on principles of hospital and healthcare emergency planning and response.
