Allens Training is pleased to announce a new first aid chartfor the people of the Sunshine Coast. This chart outlines the steps to provideCPR to a casualty in a wheelchair.

In an emergency on the Sunshine Coast, carers of people inwheelchairs need quick access to information on how to treat a casualty who maybe in a wheelchair. This might include an emergency such as a person having acardiac arrest where CPR is required and the casualty needs to be placed on thefloor.

It is clear that organisations need to have protocols andtraining in order to assist these types of situations. Planning for anemergency situation and developing a protocol that is known by staff willincrease the likelihood of it being well managed, and ease panic when thesesituations occur.

Moving and handling a casualty in a wheelchair must be riskassessed like any other moving and handling task. It is vital to ensure the safetyfor not only the patient, but also for the first aid responder to ensure nofurther injuries occur.

If you are a Sunshine Coast workplace, have you gotprocedures and protocols in place to provide first aid to people inwheelchairs?
