2 Missouri hospitals send care packages to medical staff at Las Vegas facility that treated shooting victims

Barnes-Jewish St. Peters (Mo.) Hospital and O'Fallon, Mo.-based Progress West Hospital sent care packages to the emergency room staff at Las Vegas-based Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center to help them through their experience in the aftermath of the Oct. 1 mass shooting, WENY News reports.

Staff at both hospitals collected "fellow nurse approved comfort items," which included lotions, chocolates and cards, as well as Pringles for a former Barnes-Jewish St. Peters staff member who now works at Sunrise Hospital.

Three victims remain at Sunrise Hospital following the shooting earlier this month in which several hundred people were injured, the report states.
