Jan. 30 was anything but a normal day for the patients and staff at the Mike O’Callaghan Federal Medical Center at Nellis Air Force Base. A man brandishing a handgun outside the emergency room caused the hospital to lockdown at about 10 a.m., but the care provided by the 99th Medical Group staff did not stop. The medical staff’s training allowed them to continue the care that couldn’t be put on hold — such as delivering a baby.
