JKJ Saves a Life
The JKJ Risk Control Department conducts routine resident transfer drills in healthcare communities to simulate real-life situations that can be hazardous to both residents and staff. The intent of the drills is to educate the staff about actions that can be taken to prevent injuries.
To my surprise, one of the resident transfer drills saved a life.
Cullen Wise, a JKJ Risk Control Consultant, coordinated a transfer drill where vitals were never taken. The staff immediately took the blood pressure of the employee who was playing the part of the “resident”. His blood pressure was 198/127. The employee was immediately taken to the hospital where he was treated for a life threatening condition.
Nice job Cullen! Click on the link “Our Team” below and see if you can pick out Cullen from the rest of the JKJ faces.
