On the backdrop of a mass shooting which cost more than a dozen people their lives, on Monday evening "Piers Morgan Live" invited Janis Orlowski to share her unique first-hand perspective.
The Chief Operating Officer at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, Dr. Orlowski was tasked with treating many of the wounded following the rampage at the Navy Yard, and desires a day in which her job becomes obsolete:
"I wish that we didn't have to deal with senseless trauma. I wish that we had a way to close a trauma unit for something like this. I think it's great that we have a trauma unit, that we serve the people of Washington, that we do as well as we do," explained the woman who snared a portion of the national spotlight Monday with her candid remarks at an afternoon press conference. "But you know what America? Put me out of business, make it so I don't have to have a trauma center."
Addressing the media earlier in the day, Orlowski spoke passionately about the notion that gun violence and mass shootings represent an indictment on the nation. Joining Piers Morgan live from Washington, D.C., on Monday night the doctor elaborated on her sentiment:
"It's not right, it's not good, it's not normal to get up in the morning and walk through a workplace with a shotgun and shoot to death 12 of the people that you've worked with, and send another couple to the hospital," she said. "I don't know that I have all the answers, but I think that we've got to work hard together on this, and we've got to stop this. We can't have one mass shooting after another."
