Idaho Capital Sun: Inside an Idaho hospital on Thursday, a ‘slower rolling’ mass casualty event

Idaho Capital Sun: Inside an Idaho hospital on Thursday, a ‘slower rolling’ mass casualty event. “It was quiet at 10 a.m. in the emergency department of the region’s only major trauma center. The ER had about 30 beds, with two in a hallway. Most of those beds were open and ready to take all comers. That changed quickly. There were 24 patients by 10:43 a.m. When the department’s chief physician checked the board two minutes later, there were 28.”
