Wellness Team - LGMC
While having chest pain at work in Avery Island, a gentleman drove himself to Lafayette General Medical Center. While trying to park to enter the ER, he became unresponsive. He pressed down on the gas pedal, and sped towards the Wellness Center’s parking lot, striking a car and light pole. The Wellness Center team responded immediately with CPR, then placing him on an automatic defibrillator, delivering shocks to revive him as Acadian Ambulance arrived.
The Wellness Center staff is used to giving out advice on living a healthy lifestyle, not administering CPR. They did a fantastic job in a situation that they are not used to handling. Jenny even called the man’s wife and waited in the ER until she arrived. Kudos goes out to all of the Wellness Staff!
