DCMH facilitates community education through Boy Scout workshop

Using Decatur County Memorial Hospital’s simulation mannequin, available for all types of community education, local Boy Scout troops participated in a day-long “First Aid and Medical Emergency” workshop led by Chris Kachur, a Senior Shift Medic for Decatur County EMS. The workshop took place Oct. 19, allowing Boy Scouts to develop and master everyday first aid and emergency skills.

In this interactive workshop, the Boy Scouts were able to perform hands-on learning using the same equipment hospitals and first-responders use. They practiced what to do in several emergency situations, including chest pain, heart attack, diabetes and allergic reactions. Plus, they learned other skills like proper bandaging, splinting, CPR and more.

With the help of the DCMH Simulation Lab equipment and the expertise of hospital and first-responder staff, the Boy Scouts learned key skills and techniques and earned a badge doing so. This equipment is available for use to other community services and programs. Speakers and educators are also available upon request for any organization interested in educating their group on a healthcare-related topic. Decatur County Memorial Hospital is pleased to give back to the community. For more information or to find out how to take advantage of an opportunity like the Boy Scouts did, please e-mail lynzee.mcdowell@dcmh.net or call (812) 663-1228.
