Stop the Bleed

Teaching New Orleans residents quick action to save lives

UMC has been a pioneer in injury prevention and lifesaving techniques. Part of this effort is our commitment to the Department of Homeland Security "Stop the Bleed" Campaign. Launched in October 2015 by the White House, Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and a call to action. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.

The Stop the Bleed program at UMC is a joint venture with Spirit of Charity Foundation, LSU Health New Orleans, and the Tulane University School of Medicine.

Sen. Jean-Paul Morrell shares the story of a Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office Deputy who saved the life of a local De La Salle High School of New Orleans student after a hit-and-run accident. The deputy relied on life-saving training he received through Stop the Bleed NOLA, a partnership between University Medical Center New Orleans, LSU, Tulane and the Spirit of Charity Foundation.
