Three Cheers for Disney Nurses!

28 Jan

Nurse.com has a nice little piece this week about the nurses at Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure in Anaheim. It’s not just the first-aid stations that people like me have relied upon for band-aids and blister treatment . . . it’s being among the first responders to any type of medical emergency.

On high attendance days or during parades and fireworks, several nurses are staged in high-impact areas to ensure a prompt response. “Our medical centers are open 24/7 just like hospitals,” Talamantes says.

Nurses work staggered throughout the day and into the evening hours to ensure optimal response during peak times. All of their medical equipment, response bags, AEDs, and O2 tanks are checked and restocked throughout the day.

“On any given day we can be considered a small city based on the number of people in the parks, Talamantes says.

So, three cheers for the nurses!

    Being the spouse of an Emergency Room Registered Nurse, I can say how hard Nurses work no matter where they are stationed.

    Nurses, like teachers, are a profession we cannot do without quality members
