    Default [get oneself something] get themselves the hospital for treatment

    Powerful storms pound several central US states - Yahoo! News
    Earlier in the day, as many as 25 people suffered minor injuries when a tornado damaged several homes and businesses in the central Missouri city of Sedalia. Officials said most were able to get themselves the hospital for treatment.


    - get oneself something
    Does this mean "to take oneself to a place on his/her own"?

    What do this dictionary and this dictionary define get?

    It is a typo. They omitted 'to'.
