It's crucial that people get training that is as realistic as possible, and my role can evolve in response to a specific need. With the first wave of COVID-19 the guidelines changed on a daily basis. So, we helped train medical staff as to what they should do. For example, we went to an acute medical unit and showed them what to do if a COVID-19 patient went into cardiac arrest. They had to put full on PPE before they could deal with the patient which meant they had to leave the room.
On the Monday it took about 15 minutes for the doctor to do this before they could begin treating the patient and give them oxygen. Throughout the week, we trained, practised, and streamlined our protocols and by the Friday we got it down to two minutes!
