          ‘I’m Disappointed That My Specialty Shines In Times Of Tragedy,’ Says Critical Care Surgeon Following Vegas Shooting


          October 6, 2017

          On the heels of what’s been called the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, Dr. Phil travels to Las Vegas to help survivors of the tragedy heal their emotional wounds. After speaking with the wounded, he turns his attention to some of the healthcare professionals who have been working to save lives and treat those who were left injured.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Are you involved in a story that has made the headlines?

          “I’m proud that we were able to step up and deliver at the time, but I’m disappointed that my specialty shines in times of tragedy,” says Dr. Paul Chestovich, a critical care surgeon affiliated with University Medical Center.

          “Within the first couple of hours, there were probably 59-patients plus that came into the trauma center,” says Antoinette Mullan, RN, and clinical manager of the Trauma Intensive Care Unit. UMC treated more than 100 victims of the shooting.

          Danita Cohen, an administrator with the hospital says she’s proud of her staff. “What these men and women call ordinary, the rest of us call extremely extraordinary.”

          Fifty-eight people were confirmed killed by gunfire while attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival, on the Las Vegas Strip. Nearly 500 concertgoers were reportedly injured in the Oct. 1 attack.
