EAST MEADOW, N.Y. (AP) - The Nassau University Medical Center has increased staff and outfitted its vehicles with snow traveling gear.
Medical center officials say they expect a large increase in patients as doctors’ offices and clinics close due to the weather.
They also expect to see injuries caused by the misuse of snow blowers and generators.
Hospital officials also noted Monday that overexertion during snow removal can lead to heart attacks and other medical conditions.
