I've been reading a thread here about CPR (started by Rags2RichesRN) but I have a slightly different question than hers. My question is that I, too, am a new nurse and although I, too, took the American Red Cross CPR program last year, I really don't feel qualified to save lives in the LTC facility where I work. Most of these residents are already frail and I could easily injure them, and some are morbidly obese and there's no way I could do thrusts on them. My feeling is that there should be special CPR techniques taught for these types of patients. I just started working 6 weeks ago and I'm really worried that when I'm the only LPN on the unit that someone will choke or otherwise need life support quickly. What do you suggest I do? Just call the supervisor and hopes she gets to my unit really fast? Your thoughts will be appreciated. Thank you.
