At Garwood Medical Devices, our dedication to helping patients and saving lives does not stop with our BioPrax™ device.
On February 2, 2023, our team members participated in CPR, AED, and First Aid Training with a Certification by Buffalo CPR partnered with the American Heart Association. This certification prepares one for what to do when someone experiences a seizure, head and neck injuries, fractures, burns, wounds, choking, heart issues, and many other types of injuries.
The knowledge our staff learned from this training can increase the chance of survival in the case of an emergency till the emergency medical team arrives. Whether this emergency happens in our office or outside it, we want our staff to be able to help others.
Congratulations to Wayne Bacon, Greg Pepe, Mary Canty, Doreen McClain, Jackson Hobble, Mary Bacon, Bernadette Zumpano, Jacob Opalinski, Riley Ritchey, Tripti Gupta, Morgan Schnee, Bill Purcell, and Emily Herberger for completing the training program and earning their certifications.
On February 6th, several members of our team participated in a virtual Opioid Overdose Recognition & Naloxone (Narcan) Use Training and Certification Program. This free virtual training, is offered by the Erie County Department of Health. It is inspiring that many of our team members spent their lunch break attending the training.
Congratulations to Wayne Bacon, Greg Pepe, Doreen McClain, Morgan Schnee, Melanie Pawli, Bernadette Zumpano, Jacob Opalinski, Tripti Gupta, Bill Purcell, and Emily Herberger on adding yet another life-saving tool to their first aid toolkit!
