Most people have at least heard of “The Golden Hour“, but a lot of people either don’t know what it is, how it came about, or who came up with the idea.
The Golden Hour” was chosen as a realistic time frame because it had a ring to it. (It could have been the Golden 47 minutes, but that wouldn’t have been catchy.) Looking at the time that was wasted in other facilities getting their staff and plan of treatment together, and knowing that we could air lift in patients with the fledgling MSP (Maryland State Police) program within the hour also helped coin the phrase.
And while you’re there, show them some love to help them out. They’re great folks, and they shouldn’t be spending their own money to keep this great project going.
And there you have it, straight from the Dinosaur’s mouth. Thanks, Lou.
