Basic Life Support

You may come across emergency situations when you are at work. Patients can have problems with their airway, breathing or circulation and become suddenly unwell. During your first few months in your new job, your SCN, SCM OR Team Lead may nominate you for a short course called Basic Life Support which will help you to respond correctly in an emergency situation.

As part of your orientation to your ward / clinical area take some time to  

  • locate the emergency / resuscitation trolley 

 

If you find yourself in an emergency situation you may be asked to phone for the resuscitation team

  • Dial 2222- ask for the resuscitation team and tell them your clinical area and the hospital you are in.
