The chaos at the country music festival was matched equally in local hospitals as people flooded their doors, but a doctor says everyone in her hospital and in the city has stood up to stay "Las Vegas Strong".

Sunrise received 214 patients out of several hundred victims. The death toll remains at 59 victims, after the Clark County Coroner said the original number of 59 deaths included the gunman.

While the numbers still may be in flux, they are enormous by any standard.

In a mass-casualty situation, the Tampa Bay region's only Level 1 trauma center-Tampa General Hospital-has a plan to respond, said Tony Venezia, the hospital's director of security and emergency management.

Las Vegas Valley hospitals reported that 58 patients remained in critical condition on Wednesday after the mass shooting on the Strip.

University Medical Center of Southern Nevada was one of many hospitals that were overflowing.

No shooting survivors were still being treated at the hospital Tuesday, Oct. 3.

The sheriff says they believe this was a "lone wolf" attack but said they are looking for a roommate of the dead suspect as a person of interest.

'Every bed was full, ' Coates said.

"We have a relatively large emergency department. We'll bring some patients in that are made to look like victims and we'll bring them through the trauma bay and up to the ORs if they need it to make sure that we're ready and prepared", Dr. Talley said.

These methods are taught with the hope of keeping as many people alive as possible.

CARINO: Well, officials here at University Medical Center are saying they do now have enough blood on hand for their current load of patients.

"We can get patients from an ambulance into the OR [operating room] in one minute", Cohen says.

Level 1 centers must have qualified surgeons and an anesthesiologist immediately available, staffed operating rooms, a blood bank, and evidence of programs that review quality. Mullan's daughter, Antoinette Cannon, 29, a trauma nurse who also works at the hospital, was standing out front with a physician assistant, taking injured patients out of vehicles as they drove up to the hospital and quickly assessing whose conditions were the most precarious. The stocks have been around for less than a decade, and Schneider said officials determined they were legal.

The mass shooting prompted panic and a lockdown at hotels along the Strip, as a barrage of gunfire rained down on the crowd.

"When we have families coming up looking for loved ones and we have Doe's, that's overwhelming".

MARC's Emergency Rescue Committee developed its first "regional mass casualty incident plan" in the 1970s.

Through a series of interactive demonstrations and lectures, nurses learned the most effective ways to do things like stop a bleeding patient, triage patients and resuscitation.
