TGFSN!! (Thank Goodness For School Nurses!)
Kudos to Brittany Feil, BSN, RN, who was quick to react in a possible cardiac event with a substitute teacher last week in Bismarck! When alerted to the situation, Brittany quickly obtained the AED and applied it to the teacher to check his heart rhythm. No shock was needed, but she also obtained aspirin for him to take right away (impressed anyone had any on hand!). The school was very thankful she was in the building that day! Well done, Brittany! You are a great example of what school nurses bring to the entire school team!
