LifeVac Europe was informed one of our devices was used within Hallmark Care Homes during mealtime.
A resident began to choke during mealtime while sitting in her chair and could not breathe. Staff acted very quickly to the situation delivering BLS protocol which unfortunately failed to clear the resident’s airway. LifeVac was then deployed within seconds clearing dislodging the airway obstruction saving the resident’s life.
Hallmark Care Homes followed their company vision “To be recognised as the leading provider of high quality, relationship-centred care for all residents.” last September when they rolled out LifeVac across their group having selected face to face training with our team.
