Pediatric nurses from Diamond Children’s at University Medical Center volunteered recently to teach CPR to employees of a Tucson (Ariz.) Mall store.
The training session, held at University Medical Center offices, followed an incident where employees were shaken after witnessing a shoppers newborn accidentally fall to the pavement outside their store, according to a UMC news release.
Paramedics responded, and the baby was fine, but the staff felt helpless in the emergency, the store manager said in the release.Gabrielle Jurecky, RN
UMC pediatric nurse and certified CPR trainer Gabrielle Jurecky, RN, BSN, MSN, who was shopping nearby and observed their distress, offered to teach cardiopulmonary resuscitation to the staff.
Jurecky recruited several other nurses to volunteer their time and expertise.
