In a bid to promote child safety and primary medical care during school hours for emergency situations, Paras Bliss Hospital, Panchkula, organized an In-house Teachers’ Training on Pediatric Emergencies, a first-of-its- kind in the Tricity area, on August 13, in the hospital premises.
Dr Krishan Yadav, HOD & Consultant – Neonatology, Paras Bliss Hospital, Panchkula said, “Children spend a significant portion of their day in school. Pediatric emergencies such as asthma attacks, accidental injuries, sports injuries like fractures, and sprains, are common incidents that occur in school. The first hour after, is considered the golden hour, and the treatment that children receive by the teachers before visiting a hospital can save lives and prevent minor injuries from becoming major ones. “
Dr Rishi Mangat, Centre Head, Paras Bliss Hospital, Panchkula said, our goal here is to train teachers to identify the crisis and act promptly. Also, we hope that these teachers will be influencers in the school, helping their colleagues manage similar situations. They will also bring about changes in the way in which schools equip their medical rooms.”
Prominent schools of Panchkula like Saupins School and FMD School were present to take part in this training and almost 60 registered to be a part of this activity to ensure better safety of their school children.
