A shooter Saturday killed two employees at Methodist Dallas Medical Center in Texas. The suspect was later arrested and taken to another hospital for treatment after a confrontation with police.
“The Methodist Health System Family is heartbroken at the loss of two of our beloved team members,” the health system said Saturday. “Our entire organization is grieving this unimaginable tragedy.”
Robyn Begley, AHA senior vice president and chief nursing officer and CEO of the American Organization for Nursing Leadership, said, “AHA and AONL mourn Saturday’s senseless tragedy at Dallas Methodist that took the lives of two health care workers. We stand with our colleagues as they grieve the loss of their friends and coworkers. Health care workers should never have to worry for their personal safety, especially while caring for a patient. AHA and AONL continue to work collectively with the health care community and policymakers to finds solutions to mitigate workplace violence.”
