Stanford Medical Center evaluated 45 patients from Saturday's crash of Asiana Airlines Flight 214, and admitted 16. Three were in critical condition and 10 in serious condition, according to Dr. Eric Weiss, director of emergency medicine.
The vast majority of patients came by ambulance, although some were flown in by U.S. Coast Guard helicopter, said Dr. David Spain, director of the hospital's trauma center.
The injuries ranged from internal bleeding to numerous fractures, including several spinal fractures and blunt force injuries, Spain said.
Stanford is one of nine Bay Area hospitals to receive patients from the crash, which killed two people and injured 182 others.
Weiss said that the hospital activated its emergency management plan immediately after being notified of the crash and within 30 minutes was able to mobilize more than 150 health care staff including doctors, nurses and other support staff.
In particular, the hospital activated seven trauma teams that included skilled surgeons, Weiss said. Spain noted that while the hospital handled the influx of patients from the crash, patients from other incidents were still being admitted and helped as needed.
Elsewhere in the Bay Area, San Francisco General Hospital had received 52 patients from the Asiana Airlines crash, a hospital spokeswoman said Saturday night. The hospital received four waves of patients from the crash, including an initial wave of 10 critical patients, hospital spokeswoman Rachel Kagan said.
Of those initial 10, two were children. Kagan said five of those patients have since been upgraded to serious condition.
Later waves of patients included a wider mix of conditions, including some with minor injuries who were treated and released without hospitalization, Kagan said.
Kagan noted that the hospital had converted a pediatric urgent care center to help deal with the influx of patients. The hospital also set up tents outside and brought in additional staff.
