Stop the Bleed Training Sessions
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Trinity Health Riverside 1900 8th Ave SE Minot, ND
Trinity Health has joined the nationwide campaign, “Stop the Bleed,” offering a series of training sessions to teach community members the basics of how to stop life-threatening bleeding.
“Uncontrolled bleeding is the leading cause of preventable death due to trauma,” said Rhonda Gunderson, RN, BSN, Trinity Health’s Trauma Program Manager. “Stop the Bleed is designed to empower a bystander without medical knowledge to take action if faced with a situation in which someone is injured and bleeding. It’s a skill everyone can easily be taught when they take the course. Having the training to control bleeding until help arrives could save a life.”
Stop the Bleed classes are open to any member of the public. A $20 fee must be paid at the time of the class. Each student will receive a Bleeding Control Kit upon completion of the course. Space is limited. To register or for more information, call Trinity Trauma Services at (701) 857-5700.
