Your organization has AEDs. Great. Now what?

You’re committed to being prepared for sudden cardiac arrests at your locations.

So then, do you ask yourself:

  • How many AEDs should we have for our locations?
  • Where should AEDs be placed in our buildings?
  • How will people quickly find an AED during a medical emergency?
  • Can the same people get and use an AED for a cardiac arrest victim?
  • Who on our staff needs to be trained and who will manage our AEDs?
  • Are we properly inspecting and maintaining our AEDs?
  • Do we need medical direction and where will we get it?

You might also be wondering…

Are there legal requirements for having and using our AEDs:

  • Are there any standards and laws we must follow?
  • Can we get sued in court if something goes wrong?
  • How can we show we are compliant with standards and laws?

All great questions. We hear this all the time. 

Readiness Systems can help.

But first, let’s get clear on some things…

What is an AED program?

It’s a set of policies that prepare your organization to help a person who is having a cardiac arrest.

These policies help organize the people, systems, equipment and activities of an AED program. 

Why do you need an AED program?

It’s simple. To:

  • Help save someone’s life if they have a cardiac arrest
  • Ensure your people perform responsibly when cardiac arrest happens
  • Reduce the risk of getting sued if something goes wrong

What’s required for your AED program?

Your AED program must meet industry standards and AED laws. This includes:

  • Showing you are prepared to save lives of cardiac arrest victims
  • Proving you are compliant with industry standards and AED laws
  • Defining who can get and use AEDs for a cardiac arrest victim
  • Keeping AED devices properly maintained and ready 
  • Having the right people properly trained 

Setting up, operating and maintaining an AED program is complex. 

Don’t go at it alone. There’s too much at stake.
