Catskill Regional Medical Center Foundation To Host Emergency Care Institute
Free 3-course Fall Seminar for Emergency Medical Service Paramedics in Sullivan County
In honor of its commitment to the local community, Catskill Regional Medical Center has created an Emergency Care Institute. The Institute is the first free, 3-course fall seminar to assist local Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Paramedics in Sullivan County to meet their requirements for New York State certification.
“We ask everyone interested in emergency services to join us for this important Emergency Care Institute,” said Catskill Regional Medical Center Administrator of Emergency Services, Critical Care and Support Service, Wendy E. Brown. “As healthcare changes, we need to broaden our scope – for our community, for our hospital, for existing emergency services personnel and those who wish to enter the field and become certified.”
“Sponsored by the Catskill Regional Medical Center Foundation, we are looking forward to the first Emergency Care Institute as we remain dedicated to protecting the lives and safety of our Sullivan County residents,” says Catskill Regional Medical Center Foundation President Joan Farrow. “Funding for the institute was made possible by the proceeds raised at Catskill Regional’s First Responders Dinner, held each year in Sullivan County, during National Emergency Services Week.”
The Institute will begin on October 27, with its first class “Respiratory Support – Preparatory & Airway” instructed by Paramedic, Charles Miller, RN.
The second class, “Recognition of Pediatric & Adults Sepsis in the field – early recognition & Advanced hospital notice” will be instructed by Medical Director of Catskill Regional Medical Center’s Emergency Department, Dr. Carlos Holden and will take place on November 17.
The third class, “Patient Assessment” will be instructed by Paramedic, Tom Andryshak and will take place on December 15.
All classes (excluding the first) will run from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on the third Thursday of the month and will take place in Catskill Regional’s Board Room, 2nd floor, Ambulatory Surgery Building, 68 Harris-Bushville Road, Harris, NY 12742.
These three classes qualify attendees for the New York State required Continuing Medical Education Core Content. For more information or to register, contact Barbara Horton at 845-794-3300 ext. 2250.
