Mass Casualties, Contaminated but Uninjured People, and Worried Well
An incident caused by nuclear terrorism may create large numbers of contaminated people who are not injured and worried people who may not be injured or contaminated
Measures must be taken to prevent these people from overwhelming the emergency department
A triage site should be established outside the ED to intercept such people and divert them to appropriate locations.
Triage site should be staffed with medical staff and security personnel
Precautions should be taken so that people cannot avoid the triage center and reach the ED
