care homes without a defibrillator

Post by Admin on Fri Apr 13, 2018 11:24 am

PASSERS-BY who desperately tried in vain to save the life of a woman who collapsed outside a care home were shocked that it did not have a defibrillator device.

Private contractors running Gospel Oak Court – one of two flagship care homes commissioned by Camden Council – told the New Journal they are now considering installing the life-saving units in the wake of the incident in Maitland Park Villas.

Staff may also be handed new training in first aid, said Shaw Healthcare, which holds a 30-year care deal with the Town Hall. The woman, in her 80s, was coming back to the home pushing a shopping trolley when she collapsed.

I strongly believe that this reference is a joke you cannot tell me any staff in a care home dosnt have basic first aid in a care home

He said that when he asked staff at the home to bring out a defibrillator they said there was not one and did not appear to be trained in basic first aid. Mr Kennedy said: β€œIt’s a nice environment in the home there, but really they should have a defibrillator.

they receive plenty of income so why not a defib on the premises
