Memorial sparks interest in emergency medicine through LOT Crew demo
Recently Memorial hosted approximately 25 eighth graders from all over Nacogdoches County, through the Leaders of Tomorrow (LOT) program. The students got a hands-on look at emergency preparations our EMS and ER teams use to train for mass casualty incidents. EMS crews staged an automobile accident scene and students got to participate in the moulage process, applying makeup to several “victims” to make their mock injuries believable. In the field, students acted as paramedics, stabilizing and extricating their fellow student victims from the wreckage, then rode in the ambulance to the hospital where student “nurses” navigated the trauma process.
