Almost any hospital worker could see victims of a chemical incident.
During the 1995 Tokyo sarin attack, 640 victims nearly overwhelmed St. Luke's
International Hospital. Routine patient care was halted. Doctors and nurses from
all areas of the hospital were called on to care for patients unlike any
they had seen before. This
video training is essential for all staff. It is also an excellent
introduction to more advanced training.
