Code Blue Emergency Training

​CODE BLUE EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT

Philips M3535A Heart Steart MRX Code Blue
They are words nobody wants to hear in a hospital: “Code Blue.” But when a patient suffers a cardiac arrest, those words are broadcast throughout the hospital. It’s like hearing alarm bells or the siren of an ambulance. It’s an emergency. Seconds count because a life hangs in the balance. Having properly trained staff to respond on a moment’s notice is essential. So is having the latest state-of-the-art equipment nearby.

Mel Goodwin

My name’s Mel Goodwin and without the expert care at Richmond Hospital, I could have lost both my feet. I am incredibly grateful to be up and walking, and that’s why I want to share my story with you today. I’ve lived in Richmond since 1952, and spent my lifetime working as an electrical  contractor, consultant and project manager worldwide. All of those years wearing steel-toe boots and working in the industry definitely took a toll on my feet.


"​The infection had gotten bad very quickly - but the doctor's quick action saved me."

I was working long hours on a mining site in Labrador, Newfoundland. The lining in my boots had worn through and one of the toes on my right foot was bleeding. It didn’t look too bad so I just put a bandage on it. After working for 10 hours the next day, my toe was very swollen and had turned yellow. Strangely, I hadn’t felt any pain. The first aid attendant at work told me I had to go home as soon as possible. When I got home, my wife Barbara took me straight to Emergency at Richmond Hospital.
