Gerontologist, v29 n3 p388-92 Jun 1989
Studied prior planning for and problems associated with evacuation of 1,860 nursing home patients in Pinellas County, Florida, due to Hurricane Elena in 1985 through questionnaires administered to nursing home administrators and public documents. Found most serious problems to be transporting patients to shelters in timely fashion, delayed passage of recalled staff through police checkpoints, and staff burnout. (Author/NB)
