TRAINING SUCCESS STORY CPR SAVES THE DAY …
While riding home from work, three co-workers were “off the clock and off company property” when one of them began having a problem breathing and became unresponsive. The driver quickly returned to the workplace location and summoned help for the non-responsive team member.
As it turns out the co-worker (Friend) responding to the frantic call for help had recently participated in the CalWork Safety & HR Safety Training course. After the car arrived, when Friend reached the non-responsive man, he immediately began applying the safety course protocol he had recently acquired.
First, he checked his co-worker and found no pulse or response. By now the man’s lips had turned blue. Next, the dangerously ill man was removed from the car as another participant instructed someone to call 911. Friend then began administering CPR using rescue breaths that he had learned and practices during his CPR training course.
After the CPR had been administered for several minutes, the non-responsive team member began shallow breathing and registered a weak pulse. Friend continued monitoring then rolled his co-worker on his side while administering CPR until 911 arrived and assumed treatment responsibility.
The patient was taken to the hospital and was released a few hours later and monitored over the weekend. Because of the help from Friend and quick response, he returned to work the following week.
NOTE: CalWork Safety & HR Consultant, Ralph Dorwin, was the company’s CPR class instructor. He comments: “This is my first reported example of someone who graduated from my CPR Training Course successfully used the techniques learned in class. It is most gratifying to know that the CalWork Safety & HR training courses really does make a difference for our clients!”
