Johns Hopkins Shooting ~ the craziest day at work in 25 years!
The Johns Hopkins Hospital
Yes, I was there... working at Johns Hopkins Hospital at the time of the shooting. I work in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) which is adjacent to the Nelson building where the shooting took place. We got word swiftly via our paging system and immediately our unit was secured. No one entered or left for 3 hrs during the event. Our am proud at how well our leaders handled the situation. Our Nurse Manage was keeping our NICU parents at ease and no one was worried about our own safety. All we could do was pray for the Doctor who was shot by the gunman.
Needless to say the day was eventful and now the most memorable to date in my 25 year career at Johns Hopkins. Please keep everyone involved in this in your prayers! Here is a news brief on the shooting.
Hoping to sew this evening and tomorrow, not working again until Saturday night. Tomorrow night I will be randomly picking a winner of my Anniversary Blogging Giveaway.
