Banner Boswell Medical Center’s sponsored its first Emergency Medical Services "mega skills" lab Thursday.

The continuing medical education event was attended by 65 emergency responders from around the Valley, including Sun City, Sun City West, Glendale and El Mirage fire departments.

Lab instruction was provided by clinical staff members from Banner Boswell, as well as paramedics and registered nurses from three Valley medical flight agencies. Registered nurses and paramedics from 11 pre-hospital agencies circled through nine skills lab stations, including pharmacology and 12-lead EKG reviews and mock code training. Registered nurse Gloria Powell, Banner Boswell’s pre-hospital coordinator, organized the event to enhance the skills and knowledge base of first responders in the West Valley.

Continuing education is required for first responders to maintain their state certification.

"By providing these labs, Banner Boswell is assuring that the skills of our first responders are current and accurate. As a ‘base’ hospital to many of these agencies, providing medical direction to emergency responders on scene in the field, Banner Boswell is required to observe and validate observation of these skills," Powell said.
