The NEW RQI Responder program is the ideal CPR education model for non-clinical hospital staff – employees that are not directly involved in patient care such as groundskeepers, cafeteria workers, maintenance personnel and more.
Ancillary staff are often the first to witness a cardiac arrest event in a hospital.
- 200,000 in-hospital arrests occur yearly in the U.S.
- 1-4% of these arrests will occur to non-patients, especially visitors or staff
- Immediate CPR can double or triple a cardiac arrest victim’s chance of survival
Online, self-paced cognitive lessons and quarterly hands-on skills portions with the RQI simulation station ensure that your hospital’s entire staff feels empowered to take action and perform High-Quality Hands-Only CPR in the event of a cardiac arrest emergency.
