3 Patients Still In Critical Condition Following Asiana Crash
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – Three patients injured in the Asiana Airlines Flight 214 crash remained in critical condition at San Francisco General Hospital Thursday.
Those patients include one juvenile, hospital spokeswoman Rachael Kagan said. There are also four other patients—three adults and a juvenile — still at the hospital in serious to good condition, she said.
The hospital received 67 airline passengers who were injured in the crash, with the latest patient arriving Wednesday with a complaint of pain, she said. That patient was treated and released.
Stanford Hospital received 55 patients after the crash, including seven minors who were taken to Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, according to spokesman James Larkin. The juveniles were all released Sunday evening.
On Thursday, two patients were still at the hospital in serious and good condition. One of those patients had been listed in critical condition Wednesday but has since improved, Larkin said.
Nine other patients were transported to three California Pacific Medical Center campuses after the crash, CPMC spokesman Dean Fryer said. Three adults who suffered from a compression fracture, a leg injury and rib injuries remain hospitalized in good condition, he said.
In San Francisco, St. Mary’s Medical Center treated five patients and Saint Francis Memorial Hospital treated seven.
On Thursday, each hospital had one remaining patient. Both were in stable condition, a spokesman said.
