Sanford Incorporates Teamwork In Emergency Care

Posted: Updated:
When tragedy strikes hospitals can be considered one of the safest places to be. It's crucial they are always prepared with resources.

When it comes to mass traumas, like a school shooting, it takes a lot more than doctors to get people the specialized treatment they need.

Sanford Health employees say it's all about teamwork, and because there is so much controlled chaos happening during a time of crisis, many patients won't take the original path into the emergency room.

"Depending on the patient's nature of the severity, their injuries go to predetermined areas. Many times, the number of injured will out-lie the ER's capacity to be able to take care of them. So, we need to expand the ER in other places of the facility," says Emergency Director Brad Erickson.
