Another Shooting Victim Has Died

A Las Vegas hospital saw more patients with gunshots wounds in one night than the busiest Denver metro area emergency room saw all previous year.

Hospital officials at Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center told The Wall Street Journal that they have carried out 10 surgeries on patients with head injuries, many of which were in very serious condition when they arrived. Four people died and 12 remained in critical condition Monday, Cohen says.

Outside of the hospital, back on the Las Vegas strip, candlelight memorials grow and people huddle together in prayer relying on faith to get through this trying time. "Drills should test the emergency department and hospital-wide activation".

Spokeswoman Cohen says as part of the event, UMC staff discussed the Orlando nightclub shooting with medical staff who treated victims. "We had people in the hallways, people outside and more people coming in".

Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center treated 180 people, including 124 for gunshot wounds.

He said 100 extra doctors were called in to work Sunday night, along with another 100 people including nurses, technicians, and support staff.

The hospital conducts regular drills to prepare for an attack similar to what happened in Las Vegas.

"Our trauma center physicians and hospital staff have done an fantastic job", said Todd Sklamberg, CEO of the hospital, in a statement.

Dozens of surgeries were performed to save shooting victims after a gunman opened fire on a crowd attending a music festival.

Hospitals and trauma teams around the country will study the Las Vegas shooting to come up with new measures or equipment that will help save lives in the future.

Earlier, Las Vegas Police held a press conference where they stated shooter Paddock was killed on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel/Casino.

Most major cities have such a plan, says Ian Weston, executive director of the American Trauma Society, which advocates for victims of trauma and the trauma care system.

Grand Strand Regional Medical Center received trauma level 1 designation in May and has a plan to respond if a mass casualty situation happened in our area.

Through a series of interactive demonstrations and lectures, nurses learned the most effective ways to do things like stop a bleeding patient, triage patients and resuscitation.

"When you see catastrophic injuries like we saw in Las Vegas caused by military grade weapons, it's about understanding that those patients are going to need extensive, critical care right then".

"It is impossible to be 100 percent prepared", he said.
