Veterans Memorial Hospital will be offering a course in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for health care providers (those working in health related fields such as physicians, nurses, EMT’s, etc.) on Tuesday, June 19, beginning at 5:30 p.m. This “Health Care Professional” CPR class will be held in the Large Conference Room located on the lower level of the hospital.
The cost of the class, for certification or recertification, is $50 and all registrants should bring along their own pocket mask. The on-line certificate received with the course does certify attendants in CPR for two years.
Pre-registration plus minimum of three participants is required. For more information and to register for the “Health Care Provider” CPR Course, please call Veterans Memorial Hospital at 568-3411.
Pictured is Machelle Bulman, RN/Director of Nursing with Diane Butikofer, RN/Director of Emergency Services at Veterans Memorial Hospital, with the new mechanical CPR simulator manikin that was purchased through a grant that was awarded to the hospital by the Allamakee County Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque this spring. This CPR simulator helps to make the CPR practice more realistic and trains students to be sure they are compressing correctly at the right depth and speed. This will now be used at all of the community CPR classes offered at Veterans Memorial Hospital.
