    Hi, nurseandlawyer, and thanks for your comment! You might also be interested in this article, from AJN’s Disaster Care department: “When Standards of Care Change in Mass-Casualty Events” (September 2007), available at http://bit.ly/2bzLn0. (Open the PDF for the cleanest read.) Authors Veenema and Toke address the role of nurses in responding to “an act of bioterrorism or other public health or medical emergency involving thousands.”

    Thank you for continuing to post this. People seem convinced that it has gone away when clearly, it hasn’t.
    I’d be interested to hear a discussion from nurses about public health measures during a pandemic.
