53 patients

53-the number of patients brought into our casualty Thursday morning after a bus lost control while being passed by a car. It was standing room only and overall I was again impressed with the function of our triage under such enormous patient pressure. How many other ERs get 53 trauma patients in one hour? The commonality of such trauma here is underlined by the lack of mention these events receive in the news.
