Patients & visitors receiving healthcare services have an expectation to be provided with an effective resuscitation service in the event that they or their relative become critically ill and/or suffer a cardiac respiratory arrest. The Resuscitation Service is in place to provide a clinical and education service to Trust employees to ensure this expectation is being met.
The Resuscitation Officers deliver the Resuscitation Service within the Trust. They are experienced healthcare professionals (nurses or paramedics) with an interest in clinical resuscitation for adult and paediatric patients.
The role of the Resuscitation Officer is both clinical and educational, requiring them to attend resuscitation events to provide clinical assistance, guidance and deliver resuscitation training courses for clinical staff in accordance with current resuscitation guidelines. The Resuscitation Officers are also responsible for resuscitation equipment standardisation and management of the resuscitation audit process for all in-hospital emergency events attended by the resuscitation teams.
