Reception of Patients

Since many patients will arrive independently of the official or formal EMS system, reports from the field may greatly underestimate the total number of patients.

All available litters and wheelchairs should be taken to the ambulance ramp immediately on announcement of the disaster status. Patients from the disaster site are met at the receiving area by hospital escorts, who assist the emergency medical technicians in transferring patients to wheelchairs or stretchers.

Essential equipment, such as endotracheal tubes, intravenous solutions, cervical collars, splints, and bandages should be placed near the ambulance entrance to permit convenient restocking of the ambulance and rapid return to the disaster site.
