On Friday, April 24th, 45 students from Bishop McLaughlin visited Tampa General Hospital for their “Trauma is NO Accident Day!”
The students were able to view the AeroMed area and the TGH helicopter, visit the Rehab Center and see a Pediatric Trauma Room where children (up to 18 years of age) are taken for treatment when they are involved in accidents.
This visit ensued from Bishop McLaughlin winning a “No Distractions While Driving” contest sponsored by More Health, Inc. and Allstate Insurance Company. BMCHS won by having 100% of the students sign a pledge saying they will not text and drive. In addition to the great Field Trip, Bishop McLaughlin won $1,000 from Allstate Insurance Company.
