Recently, Amal Obaid-Schmid, MD, medical director, trauma services, Huntington Hospital, and members of the hospital’s trauma team, trained Pasadena Unified School District school nurses in a national program called Stop the Bleed. This valuable program is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts to encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professionals arrive.
“Often times, school nurses are first responders in injuries and accidents during the school day,” said Dr. Obaid-Schmid. “Stop the Bleed provides valuable training so these nurses can better help contain injuries while emergency services are on their way.”
