The public was invited to stop out at Regional Medical Center in Manchester on Thursday to participate in their Stop the Bleed campaign.
Stop the Bleed is one of the nation’s largest public health campaigns – it encourages bystanders to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.
RMC’s Jeannette Riniker says evidence shows that a severely-injured person can die from five to ten minutes of uncontrolled bleeding. People who stopped out to the hospital from 11 to 3 on Thursday were taught by emergency department staff on how to keep the blood inside the body to help them become immediate responders and help save a life.
