Catastrophic Death and injury re-visited: an Action Plan – 190

In episode 135 – Tragedy, Death, Grief, Healing we were fresh off the loss of an athlete in which we performed life-saving skills.  We desire for each school to have an action plan in place to help the Athletic Trainers and coaches deal with the loss for the next 6 months, not just the next week.

Here is our action plan for you to submit to your district and have on file or in place before a catastrophic injury occurs.

Tragedy, Death, Grief & Healing – 135

CPR is a skill you never hope to use, NEVER.  Dealing with the loss of an athlete after performing CPR and using an AED is not supposed to happen.  It did, and I share my story and the grief process.  This podcast is recorded early in the stages of grieving.

#1 tip if you know someone dealing with grief and loss:
Text or email them “I was just thinking about you, wondering how you are doing.  If you find you need something let me know”

This gives them a chance to easily avoid talking if they do not want to talk at that time or to you but allows them to know they are not alone.

#2 Tip do it again once a week for the next few weeks.

People process things differently.
