Reflections on the Boston Marathon Bombing
We thank all of you from North America and around the world who called and emailed us to express your concern and support following the terrorists’ Boston Marathon Bombing on April 15. I was evaluating patients in our Cardiology Outpatient center that afternoon when the Code Amber Alert (for disaster) was broadcast at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The Level of the Alert quickly escalated from Phase One (“prepare”) to Phase Two (“victims are arriving”). It is a tribute to Emergency Preparedness that all bombing victims who reached the hospital alive survived.
The attack occurred on what is usually one of the most celebratory days of the year in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
