Lady Minto Hospital physicians and the solo midwife recently completed the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP). This evidence-based educational program teaches the concepts and skills of neonatal resuscitation to individuals and teams who may be required to resuscitate newborn babies. With this recent training complete, Lady Minto Hospital now has a majority of NRP-trained RNs, along with 19 NRP-trained medical staff ready to care for newborns.
NRP training is a significant investment in time, including: Pre-reading preparation, online examination and a four hour in-class session with skills and simulations. The classes were taught on Salt Spring Island by NRP instructors, retired Midwife Maggie Ramsey and RN Kelly-Ann Haslauer. This training could not have been done without the generous support of the Lady Minto Hospital Foundation – they provided newborn Ann the infant mannequin used in training.
