Mass Casualty Drill Simulates Reality at Hadassah University Medical Center

A mass casualty drill at Hadassah Hospital-Ein Kerem in early June began with "wounded" victims being brought by ambulance to Hadassah's Trauma Unit. The wounded were examined for radiation contamination by specially dressed hospital personnel (left) and those that were found to be "polluted" were washed as part of the decontamination process (right). For this drill, a secondary emergency room was opened in the lobby of Hadassah's Charlotte R. Bloomberg Mother and Child Center. The entire operation was supervised by teams from Israel's Ministry of Health, Home Front Command of the Israel Defense Forces, and Rambam Hospital in Haifa.
