Sumner County School nurses are taking extra steps to keep your child safe! Every nurse in our school district participated in PEARS training (Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Recognition and Stabilization) on Monday, September 16. In this course, our nurses learned to stabilize pediatric patients in an emergency situation. During PEARS, nurses interacted with real patient cases and realistic simulations. The real life scenarios help to prepare our nurses and keep them sharp, so they can provide appropriate lifesaving interventions within the initial minutes of response until a child can be transferred to an advanced life support provider.
The PEARS training is in conjunction with Sumner County EMS and Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.
