Security issues were revealed at Chicago’s Mount Sinai Hospital in the wake of a drive-by shooting that injured two women outside the hospital, according to an article on the York Dispatch website.
Amid security concerns, the hospital built a “fenced area” outside the emergency room to create a “safe zone,” said a hospital spokesman.
The “safe zone” allows the security team to ensure proper security screenings and “protect both patients and caregivers,” the hospital said in a statement.
The aunt of a 25-year-old man being treated in the hospital said hospital staff had not let the group inside the building so they gathered outside the private trauma center. While the man was undergoing surgery, a car pulled up alongside the hospital and began shooting into the group.
