Holy Name of Jesus has been working with medical professional in our parish, the local police as well as our Usher Ministry to develop a Medical Emergency Response Plan for liturgies. We are fortunate that we do not have many incidents of fainting or illness during the Mass. In order to be pro-active, we have developed a procedure to respond quickly if a medical situation occurs. This procedure relies not only on our ushers but volunteer medical professional (physicians, nurses, EMTs) from our parish who would check in with the Head Usher prior to the start of mass, indicate where they will be sitting, volunteer to contacted by an usher in the event of a medical emergency at mass and provide assistance as needed.
If you are a medical professional and interested in serving HHOJ in this way, please contact Michele Kirchoff, HR Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 763-473-7901 x 120.
