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

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

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

Moving and handling a casualty in a wheelchair must be risk assessed like any other moving and handling task. It is vital to ensure the safety for not only the patient, but also for the first aid responder to ensure no further injuries occur.

If you are a Sunshine Coast workplace, have you got procedures and protocols in place to provide first aid to people in wheelchairs?
