Stop the Bleed

Do you know what to do in the event of a serious injury? The first five minutes after an injury could mean the difference between life and death. Come and learn bleeding control techniques for everything from accidents at home to large-scale disasters at Stop the Bleed, a free training from Lake Regional Health System. This event will be held at Morgan County Health Center in Versailles.

Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign that encourages members of the general public to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.

Lake Regional’s Trauma nurse coordinator, Mariah Swinker, R.N., will teach participants techniques to compress and control life-threatening bleeding.

“Stop the Bleed training prepares people to help in mass casualty incidents, as well as in situations where only a few or even just one person is injured — for example, in a car accident, boating accident, knife laceration, power tool accident or lawn mower accident,” Swinker said.

The program is free and open to the public. Registration is required. Call 573.378.5438 for more information.
