Annual Life Support Training

November 29, 2019

Here at Stapenhill Dental Care our team members are committed to ongoing learning and training.

November’s training day saw our staff come together for a full days training on medical emergencies and life support. We also covered the emergency drug box, use of a defibrillator and how to perform CPR.

It’s a CQC requirement for us to refresh and update our knowledge in this area every year. Also, from a practice and personal point of view it’s very useful as fortunately, we experience very few medical emergencies in the practice.

What we also do on a regular basis in team meetings is to role play medical emergencies so that we all know what to do in such a situation and that’s probably the closest we can get other than a real life situation.

We have a range of equipment and drugs as recommended by the British Resuscitation Council, to assist in all major emergencies. We also have a defibrillator in the practice, which if ever needed could have a huge impact on someone who has had a heart attack or stopped breathing.
