Differentiating large-scale surge versus daily surge.

Abstract

This breakout session at the Academic Emergency Medicine 2006 Consensus Conference examined how baseline overcrowding impedes the ability of emergency departments to respond to sudden, unexpected surges in demand for patient care. Differences between daily and catastrophic surge were discussed, and the need to invoke a hospital-wide response to surge was explored.
