Stop the Bleed Training to help stop preventable deaths

Uncontrolled bleeding is the number one cause of preventable deaths from trauma and the greater the number of people who know how to control bleeding in an injured patient, the greater that individual’s chances of surviving their injury. South Peninsula Hospital is on a mission to help prevent deaths from bleeding emergencies by empowering the public through trainings called Stop the Bleed. During these trainings, individuals learn skills for stopping bleeding both by using only their hands and with a full trauma first aid kit available.

The first community training will take place on Saturday, November 23 from 10-11am at the hospital’s training room on Pioneer Avenue. Registration is required by calling 235-0285. The training is free, and Stop the Bleed kits will be available for purchase. Attendees will not only learn the techniques, but also be offered the opportunity to become a certified trainer from Stop the Bleed, a program of the American College of Surgeons in cooperation with the Department of Defense.
