Nursing Students Assist with Code Red

Arkansas Tech nursing students received practical experience during clinicals recently.

A group of students doing clinicals at Conway Regional Medical Center assisted with a code red alert when a local nursing home was forced to evacuate residents due to a gas leak in the facility.

The nursing students were featured in “Team Talk,” a monthly publication of the Conway Regional Health System. The article explained that the nursing students and their adviser were great help during the situation.

The students helped check vital signs and provide comfort for each resident upon entry to the hospital.

All nursing homes residents returned safely to the nursing home by 7 p.m. that evening.
