Staying Up-To-Date: Medical Staff Expands Skills Through Trainings

In keeping with our standard of having highly-trained nursing and medical staff, continued education is offered year-round.  Through additional certifications and training, our team constantly expands its medical skills by staying up-to-date on life-saving methods.  Currently, our staff is trained in the following areas:

  • CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) – all CNAs, RNs, providers, ambulance staff and WHC employees
  • ACLS (advanced cardiac life support) – all RNs
  • PALS (pediatric advanced life support) – all RNs
  • ATLS (advanced trauma life support) – all providers

Most licenses for the above certifications remain active for two years.  Several WHC providers and paramedics were recently recertified in ACLS through training conducted by Dr. Donald Kosiak, MD, former primary doctor at WHC.  Howard Walth, Trauma Coordinator from CHI St. Alexius Health, will offer a Trauma Nursing Core Course in May for RNs to complete their recertification. 

We are committed to utilizing tools like these to bring you the utmost quality of care.
