WellStar Kennestone Hospital Trauma Team Schools CCSD Nurses

Nikki Douglass, RN, Still Elementary School practices applying a tourniquet to Patti Leppo, RN, Powers Ferry Elementary School.

Members of WellStar Kennestone Hospital’s trauma team gave a demonstration to more than 100 Cobb County School District nurses as part of the “Stop the Bleed” campaign.

Paid for by a grant from the state, “Stop the Bleed” training prepares schools to save lives in a trauma situation.

During the training, the nurses practiced applying tourniquets to stop bleeding.

The training event at Piedmont Church prepared nurses for the “Stop the Bleed” kits, which will arrive at every Georgia school this year.
