Casino security staff use CPR to save patron
A casino security chief in Nova Scotia is being commended for taking command when a patron collapsed with a heart attack, performing CPR and directing the use of a defibrillator until the patient was transferred to an ambulance, according to a story on CBC News.
The casino’s security chief, Ian Flynn, is also the CPR trainer for all employees with Casino Nova Scotia. This incident was the first time he’s used that training to save a life.
According to the CBC story, casino staff are recertified in CPR training every three years, and a refresher course had been offered just a couple of weeks before.
