Special Training Equips Staff for Trauma Situations

       At the Wishek Hospital and Clinics, our staff is committed to saving lives. Through additional certifications and trainings, our team constantly expands our medical skills. Currently, our staff is trained in the following:
• CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) – all nurses
• ACLS (advanced cardiac life support) – all nurses
• PALS (pediatric advanced life support) – some nurses
• ATLS (advanced trauma life support) – all physicians and midlevels
     
       On January 24th and 25th, six of our RNs underwent a trauma nursing core course to further their education in handling emergency situations. This training was supported in part by a grant from the North Dakota Trauma Foundation. Shelly Glaeseman, WHC’s Director of Nursing/Quality Assurance, says it was beneficial to have Wishek native Howard Walth, Trauma Coordinator at St. Alexius, conduct the training. “All six nurses passed their exams and received their certification. Now, every hospital staff RN has the training that will be helpful in trauma situations,” says Shelly.

As we continue our education in order to bring the best of quality care with 
concern and compassion, we want to make sure we are meeting all of the needs 
of our patients. I greatly value your experiences with us and want to hear from 
you directly about how our services and staff can better assist you in the future. 
Please don’t hesitation to contact me with you input at (701) 452-2364 or email 
markr@wishekhospital.com. Thank you for your faithful support in helping us to 
bring better health to our communities. 

Sincerely, 
Mark Rinehardt
CEO, Wishek Hospital and Clinics
