Doctor Presents on Response

Posted: Updated:

Minot has seen its fair share of emergencies over the last 12 years or so.

Two major events challenged the region -- and especially the ability of the staff at Trinity Hospital's Emergency Room.

The flood of 2011 and the train derailment and anhydrous ammonia spill of 2002 pushed the ER to its response limit.

Dr. Jeffrey Sather was there for both events, and the knowledge gained through both disasters is something that can come in handy for other parts of the country.

Dr. Sather is on his way to Wyoming now to present to hospitals across that state what was learned from our disasters, and how other hospitals can be prepared should something unexpected come their way.

(Dr. Jeffrey Sather, MD - Trinity Health) "What I am going to present is basically our experience here, some it personal as I was here and how it affected the hospital, how we had to deal with the emergency and prepare and how we use those experiences moving forward. That is why we want other information so we can learn to prepare for something like this in your community."

Dr. Sather says he will touch on the Trinity's response during the flood of 2011 and the challenges faced -- including the lack of clean water, and how that was handled.
