Las Vegas Hospital Administrator Discusses Mass Shooting Response

Posted: Updated:

(LEX 18) - Amy Doane, Somerset, Kentucky native and Vice President of Development for Las Vegas' Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, says the medical staff has been hard at work caring for the mass shooting victims ever since they arrived late Sunday evening.  

"At the trauma center, we are used to seeing... these types of injuries, but never at this level," Doane told LEX 18. "We received 199 patients, including 120 plus victims of gunshot wounds. 77 patients were emitted in to the hospital."

As more and more wounded concert goers arrived at the hospital, several with life threatening injuries, Doane says the medical staff went above and beyond to assist in saving as many lives as they could from Sunday night till Monday morning. 

"We had more than 100 physicians and 200 nurses show up that night to assist in triaging, treating those patients, getting them admitted, getting them the surgeries that they needed, and getting everything taken care of that we needed to take care of within a short period of time."

Although Doane says she's honored to be part of the Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center team that saved dozens of lives, she's even more proud to be part of the Las Vegas community. 

"We've had individuals calling, asking if they can send cards, if they can send flowers, what they can do. So that has been overwhelming and a beautiful thing to see in light of this tragedy."
