Med Club: Stop the Bleed Training More than 1 million people have now been trained in a course created by the American College of Surgeons in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting called “STOP THE BLEED®.” This year, Shiloh’s MED Club students were fully trained in this 90-minute course led by Mandy Jones, Shiloh’s school nurse. The purpose of the STOP THE BLEED® campaign is to make our nation more resilient by better preparing the public to save lives if people nearby are severely bleeding. This preparation is being done by raising awareness and teaching people three quick actions to control serious bleeding. The formal presentation by Nurse Jones’ was followed by hands-on practice in how to apply direct pressure, how to pack a wound, and how to use a tourniquet to stop bleeding. Shiloh’s MED club students have been empowered to make a life or death difference when a bleeding emergency occurs and save a life.
