Infirmary Rolls Out Stop the Bleed Kits

The Infirmary recently rolled out Stop the Bleed kits at the 10 Defibrillator (AED) stations around the hospital.

Leaders are continuing to evaluate whether to add these at other hospital locations.

The kits are another way to help keep our patients, visitors and coworkers safe if a safety event occurs.

They provide immediate access to products that slow traumatic hemorrhaging before professional help arrives. Each kit includes a tourniquet, dressing, shears, masks, gloves, a marker and instructions.
