Las Vegas massacre highlights need for ER plans and drills
from MedPage Today
The mass shooting Sunday in Las Vegas induced something like flashbacks for physicians elsewhere who treated victims of previous multiple-shooting tragedies, and for others it reinforced the necessity for drills and planning to cope with such events. From a 32nd-floor room in the Mandalay Bay hotel, a man identified as Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire onto people attending an outdoor music festival, killing 50 and sending more than 400 to area hospitals with gunshot wounds and injuries from the resulting stampede, media reports indicated.
