Updated Statement on Conditions of Wounded Firefighters

Dec 26, 2012

The University of Rochester Medical Center has issued the following statement from Dr. Nicole Stassen, the trauma surgeon treating the firefighters who were wounded in Webster on Monday:

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.
