NNH Providers successfully complete BLS and ACLS recertification

March 27, 2023

Northern Nephrology, a leading provider of kidney care services, recently announced that their entire team of providers has successfully completed the Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) recertification courses. These courses are essential for healthcare professionals to maintain their skills in emergency life-saving techniques and advanced cardiac care. Over the past several weeks, the providers at Northern Nephrology dedicated countless hours to reviewing and updating their knowledge on life-saving techniques, ensuring that they are well-equipped to handle critical situations. The recertification courses involved in-depth training on cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), automated external defibrillator (AED) usage, and advanced airway management. Dr. Craig Hurwitz, Chief Medical Officer at Northern Nephrology, praised the efforts of the team: "Our providers have shown incredible dedication in completing their BLS and ACLS recertification, which is a testament to their commitment to providing the highest quality care to our patients." The BLS and ACLS certifications are provided by the American Heart Association (AHA) and are internationally recognized. They are valid for two years, after which healthcare professionals are required to recertify. The rigorous recertification process ensures that healthcare providers are well-versed in the latest guidelines, techniques, and best practices for emergency cardiac care. Northern Nephrology is known for its exceptional kidney care services, and this successful recertification of its staff further solidifies its commitment to patient safety and wellbeing. Patients can now continue to rely on the expert physicians and physician extenders at Northern Nephrology for the highest quality care, both in routine situations and emergencies.
