Local Girl Scouts Engage in Hands-On Medical Emergency Lessons

Katy, TX (February 4, 2016) Houston Methodist Cinco Ranch Emergency Care Center hosted 12 girl scouts from junior level troops 152015 and 152011, and nine parent chaperones on Saturday, Jan. 30.

The young women had the opportunity to tour the facility and receive hands-on lessons regarding blood pressure testing, various pediatric treatments, stroke, radiology, and other emergency services. Baystar EMS welcomed the girls to view the back of an ambulance, with one scout pretending to be a patient on a gurney.

“We were proud to guide the girls through this exciting and important exercise, and to be part of their journey to earn their First Aid Legacy Badge,” said Ike Akanu, nurse manager of the emergency care center. “Our facility is new to this community and we are honored to partner with our neighbors.”
