ER Preparedness for Major Incidents with Dr. Andi Tenner
In this episode of the Disaster Podcast hosts Jamie Davis, the Podmedic, and Sam Bradley are joined by Dr. Andi Tenner, MD, MPH, FACEP, from UCSF Medical Center’s ER. She is on the faculty as well at UCSF Medical School and is an experienced emergency room physician and world medical responder.
Andi comes on the show to talk with us about ER preparedness and how the docs and nurses in Orlando dealt with the tragic nightclub shooting patients brought to Orlando Regional Medical Center (ORMC). Any hospital ER could have been struck by this patient overload situation if the incident happened close to their doors. Find out Andi’s thoughts on how every ER and facility needs to prepare now for these types of disaster situations.
