CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now)- Cheyenne Regional Medical Center (CRMC) held its annual Trauma Skills Fair. The event was open to the public, allowing people to learn ways to prevent traumatic events. It brought a wide variety of skills that encompass paramedics, nurses, doctors and others; learning skills such as CPR, car seat safety tips, etc.
“It’s really important and great that we get to come here and practice them in a controlled environment and get comfortable with doing them here so when we’re out in the real world, we are proficient in our skills and can provide the best care for the patient at that time,” operations manager and paramedic of AMR, Kassi Moloney said.
Reports say that CRMC had approximately 1,155 trauma patients in 2019 from various causes. CRMC used this platform to help individuals prepare for traumatic events, just in case if one were to suddenly happen.
“If you feel like you need to refresh these skills and get to practice them verses try to read about them, it’s just a great opportunity,” CRMC nurse, Jennifer Dykshorn said.
CRMC host the Trauma Skills Fair every February.
