Working at horizons we have a lot of trainings that we do. When we start there are a number of trainings that we have to do before we started working at the main facility we will be employed at. We take a few days before we start at the group home or facility to finish these. When we do these trainings we sit in a room and watch PowerPoints or videos and then we take a test over them and have to score an eighty percent or higher to move to the next PowerPoint. We then have to get CPR and first aid certified. Every couple of years we have to get re certified for both CPR and first aid.

This helps from reviving an individual to stop a cut from bleeding. One of my not so drastic emergency calls was an elderly patient (PT) who had fell down a flight of stairs and could not stand or move. As a volunteer and learner they allowed me to take ahold of the situation. I had to lead my team to be successful in getting our patient safely to the hospital. I checked the PT for any bruising, bleeding or pain. I and my team were then able to treat the PT with pain medication and load the PT on to the backboard.
