Resuscitation Policy

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

This Policy is required to ensure that all staff members are aware of their responsibilities and what to do in the event that any person requires resuscitation. This replaces the previous Resuscitation Policy in part, but the procedural parts of that Policy will now be included in a new Resuscitation SOP.

Non-Clinical Staff

All non-clinical staff within the Trust must be aware of how to summon assistance and or call for an emergency ambulance when required to do so.

Clinical Staff

ALL clinical staff, regardless of their job title or work base will be expected to administer Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) or sometimes referred to as Basic Life Support (BLS) whenever the need may arise. The interventions included in that resuscitation will necessarily differ depending upon the position and experience of the member of staff and the location within the Trust, i.e. either inpatient or community areas.
