Transcript for Vegas hospitals pushed to limits after mass shooting
We have more now on the race to save those hurt in the Las Vegas attack. Nevada has just one level one trauma center and that facility and the other hospitals trying to help hundreds of victims. Linsey Davis is at the university medical center with more. Good morning, linsey. Reporter: And good morning, Michael. Just to give you perspective on what the hospitals here have been dealing with, at umc which is a hospital right behind me just for an example, prior last night the total number of patients they'd ever received all at once was 17. Last night they admitted a total of 104. This morning, a look inside the race to treat the injured. Las Vegas area hospitals working around the clock to help the hundreds of wounded. Desert springs has no available beds right now. Reporter: Medical personnel saying it's like nothing they've ever seen before. We've actually had a number of mass casualty incidents come through this trauma center but nothing of this magnitude. Reporter: At sunrise medical center they admitted 180 patients. It was nonstop. It was an oppressive evening. Reporter: Some like 18-year-old Addison short awaiting surgery. Her lower leg fractured, a bullet still inside. I tried to get up and my foot literally just felt like it was disconnected like I just couldn't run. Reporter: The college freshman says she's grateful for the stranger who helped pull her to safety. I really wish I knew who he was so I could thank him. Reporter: Hospitals including the ones here in Las Vegas regularly trained for mass casualty events. But does this compare with any kind of training? You know, our latest training ironically was with an er physician who was on duty in Orlando the night of the pulse nightclub attack here just a couple of months ago. Reporter: Right, and that was so crucial because that physician that was on duty in Orlando the night of the pulse nightclub attack was able to share with them what worked and what they could have done more effectively, Michael. Linsey, we understand there's been an incredible outpouring of support, as well. Reporter: Yes, just for one example, the sheriff yesterday morning announced that there was going to be a go fund me page created for the victims. In seven hours they raised a million dollars, Michael. Wow. That's great. All right, linsey Davis, thank you so much.
