ER Common Cases During Hurricanes

Dr. Joseph Scott

Some of the most common problems that happen in ER during hurricanes include getting people injured because they have been preparing for the hurricane, people with no place to go or families that realize they have no resources to take care of somebody.

"During the storm, quite honestly there's not a lot going on, because once winds are up but the storms out there, people aren't coming in. The only people that do make it are those that are really sick and need help right at that point," says Joseph Scott, Chief of Emergency Medicine at West Kendall Baptist Hospital.
