Doctors Medical Center Recognizing National Stop the Bleed Day

May 13, 2019


National Stop the Bleed Day – May 23, 2019 – is currently one of the largest public health initiatives in the United States. The campaign is aimed at directly saving lives – through an effort to increase public awareness and encourage people and organizations across the United States to get trained with life-saving Stop the Bleed techniques so they can be ready to take action and stop everyday instances of life-threatening bleeding in their homes and communities.

Experts say it takes approximately 3-5 minutes to die from blood loss and 7-10 minutes is the average EMS response time.

As a Level II Trauma Center, the team at Doctors Medical Center utilizes the Stop the Bleed program to educate the community on how to save lives by providing free courses on the last Thursday of every month.

Stop the Bleed is critically important because incidents like mass shootings or natural disasters, along with everyday accidents, whether on the playground, the freeway, or in the kitchen could expose people to bleeding out. It’s imperative that people become aware of this, because in many cases, death from blood loss is preventable.

Stop the Bleed is designed to teach non-medically trained community members how to control bleeding until professional help arrives. Doctors Medical Center is hosting an upcoming Stop the Bleed event for the public:

Thursday, May 30, 2019 – 6:30-8 p.m.
Stop the Bleed Free Community Course
Doctors Medical Center McHenry Conference Center, 1445 McHenry Avenue, Modesto
RSVP: 209-573-6151

Stop the Bleed is a national public health initiative with support across public and private sector organizations and individuals committed to saving lives. The initiative is supported by over 100 organizations including United States Department of Defense, American College of Surgeons, United States Department of Homeland Security, Stop the Bleeding Coalition and American Red Cross.
