In our facilities, we have as priority the safety of people but also the continuous development and improvement of the services we offer as staff, for children and adults with disabilities and of course to the parents who give us their trust and cooperation every day.
Do you know what is First Aid ?
First aid is the immediate care given to the person who needs it after an accident or sudden illness until medical attention is obtained.
The value of providing first aid is great because:
Accidents are more and more frequent so each of us has witnessed an accident at least once.
No matter how great a country’s health coverage is, it is never possible for medical help to reach the highway or our home.
The purpose of first aid is to:
To keep the sick person alive.
To relieve one’s pain or suffering.
To prevent deterioration.
The ability to provide first aid would be good for everyone. But special training is often needed.
In order to give first aid correctly, some conditions need to be met. These should be:
Check if you are also in danger with your help, e.g. electric shock, drowning
Immobilize the patient
Check his general condition (respiration, circulation, bleeding).
Call for help
Give information to the nursing staff about what you did.
First aid can be continued during transport.
