tornado hits ER and they keep working

Think your ER is ready for a disaster? Read this story of an ER in Joplin, Missouri which was not only hit by the tornado but continued to do their work afterwards even though the ER had been pretty much destroyed. It is writtent by one of the ER docs who worked there.

Joplin doctor details tornado aftermath

The hospital is now working out of a huge tent (similar to what the military would use) with trailers housing MRI and CT equipment. They have a 60 patient capacity. I guess the hospital was a total loss.

By the way I saw this story on a link from White Coats blog.
