Several organizations are embracing automated external defibrillator (AED) programs because AED use, integrated with high-quality CPR, is the best method for treating sudden cardiac arrest in non-medical or community settings. However, there’s a lot more to saving a life with an AED than simply having the device in your facility.
A complicated set of laws impacts the design, implementation, operation, and maintenance of an AED program. Whether you’re a small business or large corporation, you must successfully negotiate the regulations associated with incorporating an AED program to ensure that it’s not only compliant, but also designed to effectively aid rescuers in their life-saving efforts.
Here are 5 reasons why your organization needs an SJG Emergency Training managed AED program.
1. Align your Program for Success
SJG Emergency Training will provide AED & CPR education to your staff, enhancing the effectiveness of your first responders, and keep track of your equipment’s maintenance, ensuring that your AED(s) is/are ready to use when an emergency strikes.
2. Reduce Liability
All 50 states have Good Samaritan laws protecting organizations that choose to implement and deploy and AED program. These laws help reduce fears about the legal repercussions of using AEDs during rescue attempts. In order to receive protection under Good Samaritan laws, an organization MUST ensure compliance with local, state, and federal laws. SJG Emergency Training will keep your AED program compliant.
3. Guaranteed Compliance
Federal and some state regulations require fastidious record keeping, AED maintenance, medical direction oversight, and CPR training. SJG Emergency Training will take care of all of that for you, guaranteeing the ongoing compliance of your AED program.
4. One Location for your Safety Needs
A SJG Emergency Training managed AED program makes device ownership easy by offering support for every aspect of your program, from purchasing recommendations to installation to record-keeping oversight to maintenance. With one point of contact overseeing all aspects of the program, you’ll be assured of consistent results and timely response.
5. Save Time
Maintaining an AED program can be a time-consuming process. A SJG Emergency Training managed AED program will save time by overseeing vital components of your program, such as battery expiration, electrode pad expiration, training schedules, personnel records, and routine maintenance inspection.
