Sutter ER doctors: Wear those bike helmets
Davis Enterprise

Dr. Deven Merchant and his colleagues in the emergency department at Sutter Davis Hospital have a message for the bicycle-loving population of Davis:

“Helmets, helmets, helmets,” said Merchant, the department’s medical director.

“Just because it’s not the law for people over 18, it’s still just common sense,” he added. Merchant was surprised when he arrived at Sutter Davis from his previous position with Sutter Medical Center in Sacramento to see so many cycling-related injuries being treated in the emergency room here.
