Blood Cleanup: Baltimore, MD
We were called in to the assisted living facility on the south side of Baltimore for a very unusual freak accident blood cleanup.
Jane D., age 89 suffered a mild heart attack earlier this morning. She had been dusting her furniture and suddenly the heart attack which caused her to fall.
When she fell she knocked her leg into her electric scooter which was parked in the living room of her 2 bedroom apartment that she shared with another lady who was out to lunch.
Apparently, part of her pant leg must have gotten caught in the electric scooter. Not only did she get cut when she fell she crawled on the floor screaming for help. She was dragging herself across the entire apartment and blood tracked wherever she went.
There was blood soaked in the carpet, on the tile and the grout. I’ve never really seen anything like it. It was quite awhile before anyone heard her.
Apparently she was trying to crawl to the cord that is used to alert help. She never reached it but one of the staff was notified by someone who had overheard her screaming and got help.
Thankfully, they were able to save her leg with no major damage although from the looks of the apartment she lost a lot of blood.
Blood cleanup scenes this bad are usually from a crime scene murder or suicide. Whew. Lots of cleanup here.

Blood cleanup involves the removal and cleaning or disposal of items that have been contaminated with body fluids, blood, or tissue matter, but does not stop there.

When a firearm is used, there is often as much bio-hazardous material that you cannot see as there is that is visible. For the safety of a blood cleanup technician, and of future inhabitants, it is most important that this bio-hazardous material be decontaminated as well.
