How hospitals train to treat victims of mass shootings
from U.S. News & World Report
During drills to prepare for treating victims of a mass shooting, staff members at the 12 Sentara Healthcare hospitals in Virginia and North Carolina ask people who are portraying victims to change into a hospital gown, regardless of whether their injuries are grave or minor. The request has nothing to do with providing medical care — rather, it's a safety measure that would help determine whether any of the people streaming into the hospital is concealing a weapon.
