Emanuel AME Church massacre inspires guide

to help mass shooting survivors



COLUMBIA, S.C. (WBTW) – South Carolina agencies have announced a guide on how to support victims and family members of mass casualty events.



The 95-page guide’s creation was spurred by the Mother Emanuel AME Church shooting, in which nine people were killed in 2015.



“The office learned that the coordination of multiple entities – prosecutors, victim services staff and their allies in the community, including mental and behavioral health professionals, and multi-faith communities – was essential to ensuring that survivors and community members were treated with dignity and respect,” an announcement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office District of South Carolina reads.

The Charleston Division recently received the Zero Harm award for Su***de Prevention from SCHA. This important initiative aligns with MUSC’s High Reliability and patient safety philosophies. These are the categories that the award was based on: training, policy, safety planning, screening, and follow up. The mental health leadership team has prioritized patient safety efforts and implemented several strategies related to preventing su***de. These strategies include a focus on ongoing training of care team members including standardized su***de risk screening tools and safety plans. Other strategies that have been implemented to support a focus on safety at all times include an increase in scheduled group programming, thorough and frequent safety rounds, and increased camera monitoring.
