CPR, Drivers, & Risk Management: Do drivers of agency or personal vehicles who transport clients need to be trained or certified in CPR?
- According to the 2012 BH & CYS Standards Manuals, this only pertains to drivers who provide mobile services in a Crisis Intervention program (Section 3.H in BH manual; Section 3.K in CYS manual).
Organizations could benefit from having all drivers trained or certified in CPR as this relates to a risk management issue. (See section 1.G.1 in BH, CYS, & OTP manuals.)
- About 92% of sudden cardiac arrest victims die before reaching the hospital, but statistics prove that if more people knew CPR, more lives could be saved. Immediate CPR can double, or even triple, a victim's chance of survival. (American Heart Association)
