The massive storm continued to move upstate, the outer boroughs, and Long Island sustaining winds over 115 mph and reported gusts as high as 130 mph. The storm eventually lost strength and was downgraded to a tropical storm.

In additional, Governor Cuomo ordered the roads closed indefinitely with the exception of ambulances.Many hospitals sustained severe damage and those that are open became overcrowded with special-needs patients and family members. Backup generators are running out of fuel and hospital officials are searching for alternative locations for patients in need of care.

Subsequent to the disaster, many administrators had to resign from their position.Exercise:You are a newly hired administrator of a 12 bed Neurosurgery Intensive Care Unit with a total of 20 nurses with 6 nurses staffed each shift in a 1000 bed hospital.
