PEDIATRIC INJURY UPDATES
Date
06/06/2012
Description

Children's Hospital has, thus far, received and treated 48 patients in our Emergency Department. Many of these children suffered major injuries requiring surgery. So far 34 have been admitted. There has been one death. At least seven are still being evaluated. The night was, in terms of acuity, one of the busiest in the history of our trauma center.

We will continue to provide updates of Children’s Hospital response to injuries from Wednesday’s severe weather event including latest information on the number and types of injuries treated. We will add video and images from Chief Operating Officer Tom Shufflebarger and Emergency Medicine Physician Steven Baldwin following a 1 p.m. (CDT) news briefing.
