An East Coast multi-hospital study replicated a 3 year community medical center pilot which suggested that an association between particular meteorological conditions and surges in hospital census exists. These findings will be introduced in the first Nursing Meteorological Conference
scheduled for November 5, 2008. Research findings will be discussed. Tools for nurses to replicate the study in their location will be available.
Data was provided by the US Weather Service and study hospitals. Thank you for your attention to this nursing announcement.
