Stop the Bleed

Teaching New Orleans Residents Quick Action to Save Lives

University Medical Center New Orleans has been a pioneer in injury prevention and lifesaving techniques. Part of this effort is our commitment to the Department of Homeland Security "Stop the Bleed" Campaign. Launched in October 2015 by the White House, Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign and a call to action. Stop the Bleed is intended to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.

The Stop the Bleed program at University Medical Center is a joint venture with Spirit of Charity Foundation, LSU Health New Orleans, and the Tulane University School of Medicine.
