The Family Health Hospital recently held a two-day basic life support training exercise for some members of staff of the Institution. The purpose of the training was to equip them with skills on emergency procedures performed to assist in the survival of a patient, including emergency resuscitation to be used when a patient is in cardiac arrest.

The training, which took place on the Institution’s premises, included over sixty medical professionals comprising Doctors, Nurses, Pharmacists, Laboratory Technicians as well as staff of the In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Department. It was led by accredited providers of training in “Emergency Care” from the Bemuah Royal Hospital.

Participants were taken through the processes of proper chest compression, giving oxygen to victims of cardiac arrest, and they were also taught how to properly use the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) for the best possible outcome.

This training was the first among many that will be held to train all medical and non-medical staff of the Family Health Hospital. The next batch of participants will go through their required training, and by the end of the year, all members of staff of the institution would have had training in basic life support skills.
