This week all the staff at Canberra Dental Care did their annual First Aid Course.
Every year we take some time out of our schedule to refresh our first aid knowledge. To be the most effective in an emergency we believe practice is the key. We hope to never have to use our first aid skills but like all emergencies we cannot risk the safety of our patients and staff.
We require all our staff to complete the training. We believe that all staff should be able to respond in an emergency, not just those with medical training. This means our reception team participated in the training and gained the same skills.
This training compliments the skills and equipment already in place at Canberra Dental Care. We have all the necessarily equipment to assist in an emergency – such as a defibrillator. We believe this knowledge provides peace of mind to our staff that they have the skills to use if required. We hope it provides our patients with peace of mind that we put their health and safety first.
