Updated Statement on the Conditions of Webster Firefighters from Nicole Stassen, M.D., Trauma Surgeon, Kessler Burn & Trauma Center
December 26, 2012
Both firefighters injured in Monday’s shooting are convalescing and doing as well as I would expect at this stage. Mr. Scardino and Mr. Hofstetter are both receiving supportive care and are making small steps on their long road ahead. It is critical that they remain in an environment where they can focus on rest and recovery.
Today our plan is to get both firefighters out of bed to begin physical therapy. I expect to upgrade their status later today to “satisfactory” condition.
