Doctor: It was largest disaster we could imagine

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — A doctor who treated nightclub shooting victims says the massacre was “the largest disaster that we probably could have imagined.”

Dr. Michael Cheatham of Orlando Regional Medical Center says hospital and trauma centers prepare for disasters, but “you can never prepare adequately.”

Doctors at a Tuesday news conference praised the work of staff at the hospital, where six people remain “critically ill.”

Cheatham says described great support at the hospital, saying there was “never a time we were without anything we needed.” He also says the facility escalated rom two operating rooms to six within 30 to 60 minutes to care for the flood of patients.
