Chickasaw Council Boy Scouts earned a Baptist badge on June 24 at Baptist Women’s Hospital and the Spence and Becky Wilson Baptist Children’s Hospital by participating in three educational rotations and a service project.
They learned about Critical Care Transport, met the pediatric transport team, explored the equipment and ambulance, and learned about patient stabilization.
The group met a simulation doll, Hal, an 8-year-old who had an accident jumping on the trampoline. The nurses showed them how to use a tourniquet, clean a wound and bandage and prep the patient for transport. Each scout enjoyed a hands-on experience and practiced their new first aid skills.
Last, for their service project, they provided and painted BUDDY BENCHES for the Baptist Children’s Hospital. Each bench displays a quote, “To have a friend you must be a friend” and “If you can be anything, be kind.”
