Hotel and resort accommodation staff are often unaware a guest may be drowning or hasn’t the emergency medical skills to effectively deal with a water rescue and resuscitate those in trouble. To reduce drowning casualties, BIMC Siloam Nusa Dua is committed to providing emergency response training for hotel and tourism businesses throughout the Nusa Dua area.
On April 16th, BIMC Siloam Nusa Dua will hold a drowning simulation drill and training program involving 50 staff of Laguna Luxury collection and the emergency rescue team. The objective of this drill is to learn what actions to take at the scene of a reported drowning, both prior to the arrival of the rescuer and in support of the medic/ambulance team.
BIMC Siloam Nusa Dua continues to remind the hospitality community that the speed in which first aid and medical care is given has a major impact on the survival of those involved. Dr IGM Wijaya Putra, head of the emergency department at BIMC Siloam Nusa Dua, said such simulation is hugely beneficial and should be conducted on a regular basis. “Our typical ambulance response time to Laguna Luxury would be less than five minutes and with such qualified medical emergency skills amongst staff we feel confident and prepared for such incidents.”
