ER staff say hospitals unprepared for terrorist attacks

Hospital staff don't think their organizations are prepared to handle victims of a mass casualty event, according to a small survey of 102 emergency room and critical care physicians and nurses conducted by InCrowd. Only 32 percent believed their hospitals had adequate staff to mobilize and respond to a terrorist attack involving mass casualties. And only 41 percent believe their hospitals were ready to respond to victims of similar terrorist attacks that occurred in Paris in November. Their main concerns were available beds and an adequate blood supply. Announcement
