:uhoh3: I thought I had posted the above in geriatric forums,since I had already posted it on the main thread last week .

Plus it should say ALF (assisted living facility) nurses. Thats what I get for posting at 3am:o.,

We have a crash cart with an AED on it. Required in PA

Specializes in acute care and geriatric.

We have it - barely use it- the meds have to be reordered when they expires and it gets expensive but where i live its mandatory. We all take CPR courses which include use of the defibrillator - once in 2 years. In the case of an emergency- we call an ambulance and just do regular CPR . We have oxygen tanks and suction machines on every unit...
