Multidisciplinary teams helped marathon bombing survivors rebuild their lives
Date:3/5/2014

mong physicians, physical therapists, and other clinicians led to improved outcomes, quicker patient recoveries, and fewer complications.

The report pinpoints many lessons learned from the Marathon bombings and other mass-casualty incidents, among them:

  • Be broad and collaborative in mass-casualty planning; an occasional emergency preparedness exercise isn't enough.

  • Practice frequently, and include low-frequency, high-impact scenarios such as an active shooter.

  • Senior-level commitment to preparedness in hospitals and government agencies is essential.

  • Identify the gaps in response to nonlocal disasters, and practice to eliminate them in your community.

  • Any communication you make during a disaster should be clear, quick, and truthful.

  • Provide ample emotional support for both patients and clinical caregivers during and after a mass-casualty event.

  • Everyone has a role and responsibility in an emergency; know where to go and from whom you will get information and instructions.
