The Alberta and Xenia tornados: how two hospitals handled hundreds of victims under trying conditions.

[No authors listed]

Abstract

Tornadoes rarely hit in areas where there are many hospitals. Two of the worst in recent years caused numerous casualties in a rural area of Canada and in a small city in Ohio, taxing the capabilities of the nearby hospitals involved. This report provides details on how they handled these disasters and what they learned from their experience.
