Active Shooter Protocol - King’s Daughters’ Hospital

ED Shooting Reveals Protocol Strengths and Areas for Improvement

King’s Daughters’ Hospital | Madison, Ind.

June 21, 2018, was a typical day in the emergency department (ED) at King’s Daughters’ Hospital. Serving southeast Indiana and northern Kentucky, the hospital’s ED was moderately busy that day with standard trauma cases, ranging from broken bones to wounds that needed sutures. A bit after 12:00 p.m., a man walked into the ED waiting room, which also serves as an exit for patients undergoing same-day surgery. Blending in with other people coming and going, the man meandered around the waiting room for several minutes before leaving the building.
