ICU nurse helps ‘Stop the Bleed’ by training the community – Alabama Nursing Board Defense Lawyer – Call Today! – (866) 348-2889
A nurse clinician in the surgical/trauma ICU at New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, New York City, Liu introduced the Stop the Bleed campaign at her facility. Initially created by the American College of Surgeons she brought the program to her own facility and — with the help of nursing colleagues — to different sites in New York City.
It has been a labor of love for Liu and she doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
The national awareness campaign was initially launched by the White House in October 2015 to encourage bystanders to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.
The American College of Surgeons is leading the effort to train civilians to stop uncontrolled bleeding, which is where Liu and her colleagues come in.
