El Paso, Texas shooting: Hospital gives update on Walmart shooting victims | ABC News
Good morning, my name is David champagne on the chief executive officer here at Del Sol Medical Center. We wanted to come to you this morning and be able to give an update of the patient’s the victims from Saturday’s Saturday, shooting to the patient that we have here. In House at Del Sol, we are incredibly proud of the patients have been discharged, one patient has been transferred to another local hospital, 5 remain in stable condition, and one remains in critical condition. It is absolutely heartbreaking and I’m terribly sorry to be able to share that to of the patients have ended up passing away. One elderly woman ended up passing away in the middle of the night and another patient patient just recently passed away. I’M going to have dr. Stephen Flaherty are arthro. Medical director can be able to share a little bit more about the nature of the injuries, but the nature of the patients that we ended up seeing and end. The way in which person who did this was was shooting indiscriminately. The challenges that are care team is had and taking care of a lot of these patients has been beyond just treating their gunshot wounds. It’S been treating other comorbidities and and issues that these patients have had it, and so my sincere compliments to the entire team for the work that they have done and in what has been nearly impossible situations to be able to come in and share a little bit. More., the past 48 Hours by Partners, Jodi Smith, good partner, major Chris Bell from Womack from William Beaumont Army Medical Center, have been forgot. Providing surgical support and interventions to patients involved in the shootings have been providing Continuous Care in the Intensive Care Unit to these most critically injured patients. At most times, there has been more than one of us present in the ICU. Unfortunately, these have been devastating and major, and we are deeply saddened to be here today to have to tell you that to patients have passed in addition to the care that we have been organizing and leading, there has been an incredibly robust support staff by our sides. The nursing staff has been incredible. The delsol ICU Nursery has been amazing hit most times there have been two or three nurses at the bedside of each one of these patients. That, of course, is in addition to our respiratory therapist. The other support ending support from the leadership of this Hospital led by David chimp. So we are truly heartbroken to have to be here to report this, since I perceived have been devastating consistent with with with with what has been reported as a high-velocity gunshot wound, our patient, who died had major. I can tell about one of the patients who died that the patient had major inter abdominal injuries affecting the liver, the kidney in the intestines received massive blood transfusion, utilizing all types of blood products, the red cells, in addition to products that help coagulations ffbe platelets cryoprecipitate. I don’t think I can add anything more at this point. It’S up to echo on behalf of myself and my team. We were just visiting with the family and, as I’m done, hugging the son of a guy who just lost his mom, he’s he’s talking about the nurses and the doctors and complimenting them to me and that’s what he was thinking about it at this point and and Being able to convey just what a phenomenal job, I’m all the doctor’s all the team here at Del Sol, all the Del Sol family has done and in taking care of his mom and ultimately, all of the 11 victims that we received happy to open it up. To any question, with the challenges to respect for the families, we we can’t believe something about the nature of the injuries to the patients ages from 35 82 again, there were significant amount of comorbidities of some of these patients have had absolutely about the patient, and if You can talk about the other patient, there’s nothing that we can share right now, elderly woman passed away now, there’s one more in addition to that correct within the past. Our thank you very much.
