A symposium held last week regarding active shooters at hospitals
had been planned for months, but became especially relevant
following a false alarm early this month at Mercy Hospital
Southwest in which someone reported an active shooter.
Bakersfield Heart Hospital earned an award for meeting specific
criteria and standards of performance for the quick and
appropriate treatment of ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction
(STEMI), which is the deadliest type of heart attack caused by a
blockage of blood flow to the heart that requires timely
treatment. (23ABCNews Bakersfield)

Heart Association’s Mission: Lifeline® STEMI Receiving Center
Bronze Level Recognition Award, acknowledging the hospital’s
commitment and success in implementing exceptional standards of
care for heart attack patients. (23ABC News Bakersfield)
