The New Normal for First Aid Instruction

The Covid-19 virus has changed training significantly. Mercy Medical has ceased teaching public classes for the time being. As stringent followers of the rules set by the American Heart Association we are observing daily changes in procedures. We also recognize that regulating agencies and health care facilities still have to keep current with their certifications. We will continue to participate in the part II portion of Healthcare Provider (Heartcode) at our office on a one on one basis. We have dramatically increased our health standards, not that we weren’t clean before, but gloves on in class, optional availability of masks and Social Distancing, changing lungs on manikins every use and wipe down of every equipment touched are in effect. Our goal is to continue instruction but well within the guidelines set by health agencies.
