NBC Nightly News spent several hours in our Emergency Department on Monday, May 18th particularly in our Pediatric ED, for a story on the H1N1 flu virus. The piece aired nationally May 20th during the 6:30pm broadcast.
Dr. Estevan Garcia is seen evaluating several patients and is interviewed on-camera discussing the new protocols we have put into place as the situation evolves. In addition, the piece features footage taken in our own Microbiology Lab as a swab was tested for flu. An overview of the main ED, and scenes from our waiting areas are included.
You can view the digital clip below, or see it on the NBC Nightly News homepage: scroll down the video clips panel and you'll see a photo of mother & daughter in masks in our Peds waiting area.
