Being prepared for the unthinkable: Hospital, police and EMS stage massive active shooter drill in Riverhead
The scenario: A shooter armed with a Glock 9mm handgun enters the emergency room and opens fire. Within three minutes, 25 people — patients and staff — are shot and injured, some seriously. Here's how PBMC, Riverhead Police and other first responders handled the test during a massive emergency drill this morning.
PBMC needs to add additional ambulance bays to accommodate the increased number of ambulances bringing patients to the Riverhead hospital since its designation as a level-three trauma center and the opening of a cardiac catheterization lab this year, PBMC president and CEO Andrew Mitchell said.
Peconic Bay Medical Center will open its interim cardiac catheterization lab in one week, bringing life-saving cardiac techniques to Riverhead and the North Fork for the first time.
Rotary's gift to the hospital contributes to PBMC's latest expansion effort: the construction of a $60 million critical care facility that will house a new heart care center.
Attention Parent(s)/Caregiver(s): PBMC is offering a free pediatric speech and language screening for preschool children ages 3 to 6.
