The overdose victims were arriving outside the emergency department, which meant nurses were walking outside the emergency department to aid these incapacitated patients. Clark knew nurses had not been trained to respond to these situations, and their safety was at risk.

Sadayappan uses that knowledge unearthed in the laboratory to reach members of the South Asian community through a non-profit known as Red Saree.
