The staffers at Bakersfield Heart Hospital in Bakersfield, Calif., are being lauded for their response to a recent active-shooter situation, according to an article on the Campus Safety website.
The healthcare facility was locked down after a man was spotted in the employee parking lot with a rifle.
Surveillance video shows the suspect waiting outside an employee entrance for about eight minutes. He then shoots through a door and pushes through the broken glass to enter the hospital.
Before the gunman entered the building, an environmental services staffer and a security guard spoke to him in the parking lot. The housekeeper went to the CEO's office to inform her of the situation.
Within seconds, a code silver was issued and the hospital was put on lockdown. Surveillance video shows nurses moving patients into secured rooms.
