A local medical center held an event to discuss the proper care of trauma patients.

On Tuesday, October 3rd, AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center and MidAtlantic MedEvac held a workshop for 30 individuals attending the national conference on EMS.

The workshop welcomed emergency medical service professionals to learn about the care of critically injured patients from the scene of the injury to discharge from the hospital.

Officials say having events like this are a great way to educate emergency care providers so they are well prepared in the future.

"Educating our providers and letting them know what we can do here at AtlantiCare and the education that we can provide with MidAtlantic MedEvac is great for the EMS providers," said Derek Jacobus, flight paramedic at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.

During the workshop, attendees got to participate in a variety of different demonstrations and presentations as well as received a tour of the helipad, trauma treatment bay, and critical care unit at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.
