TriStar Spring Hill ER and TriStar Centennial Medical Center will team up on Wednesday, Aug. 26 with local emergency response organizations to stage a drill that will test preparedness for the treatment of patients with heart attack.
The drill will begin with a 911 call dispatching the Spring Hill Fire Department and LifeGuard EMS to the site of the emergency. The Walmart store at 4959 Main Street in Spring Hill will serve as the site for the exercise, with the role of the “heart attack patient” being filled by Spring Hill Fire Chief Terry Hood.
Chief Hood will be transported by EMS to TriStar Spring Hill ER for evaluation and treatment. The drill scenario calls for a heart attack patient that requires AirEvac transport to TriStar Centennial Medical Center and treatment in that facility’s cardiac catheterization lab.
Taking part will be the TriStar Spring Hill ER medical and emergency department staff, AirEvac Lifeteam, LifeGuard EMS, Spring Hill Fire Department, Spring Hill 911 Dispatch and the physicians and staff of TriStar Centennial Medical Center.
