CHRISTUS St. Michael Hospital-Atlanta honored members of law enforcement from Cass County by hosting a fish fry in conjunction with National Police Week on Friday, May 19, at the hospital. Participants also received training and education on the appropriate use of combat application tourniquets (CAT).
Taught by Nicole Fant, MSN, RN, SCRN, Trauma Program Manager, and Debbie Hughes, RN, CDE, Clinical Educator, at the hospital, CAT training is designed to help officers know how and when to use tourniquets.
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to express our gratitude to area law enforcement for their daily efforts on behalf of the community and to collaborate with them in helping to meet the emergent needs of area citizens,” said Micah Johnson, MSN, RN, Director of Nursing at CHRISTUS St. Michael Hospital-Atlanta. “Providing additional education and training for officers is one way of giving back to our community.”
