Hospital Employee Shot Outside ED

From WBAL:

“There was a call made to our ED charge nurse that said there was an individual who they believe was shot out at our south garden entrance,” said Larry Strassner, senior vice president of operations and chief nursing officer.

A team from the emergency department, along with Baltimore County EMS, rushed to help the woman, and not knowing if there was an active shooter situation, the hospital went on lockdown. The lockdown lasted for about an hour, officials said.

“It’s fascinating to watch the level of care and how people work so efficiently. The teamwork is there and the after-effect is much more emotional because it is one of their own,” Strassner said.

Crews got the victim to the emergency department. They stabilized her and sent her to Shock Trauma.
