Increased helicopter use eases patient load at LA County hospitals

Los Angeles Times, September 15, 2008
A new plan that makes greater use of helicopters to distribute the seriously injured to hospitals across Los Angeles County got high marks from trauma surgeons. The goal is to ensure that the injured get the proper level of care and to "spread patients out instead of having one hospital inundated" near a disaster scene, said Cathy Chidester, director of the county's Emergency Medical Services.
