An Exceptional Response, As Usual

Around 2:20 PM yesterday, a tour bus traveling from Altoona, PA, to Rocky Gap Casino went out of control and crashed.  The result of the crash was that 15 of the 26 passengers came to our Trauma Center and the remaining passengers were transported to UPMC Bedford.  Our Command Center was activated and the response was overwhelming.  The ED staff, the Lab, Radiology, Respiratory Therapy and a host of others, including many docs who were off, responded to assist.  For the most part, the passengers were treated for minor injuries and released.  Nonetheless, the dedication and teamwork when an incident like this one occurs is amazing and makes one proud to be associated with WMHS.
