Huntington Hospital Hosts Mobile Intensive Care Training

Recently, Jenny Van Slyke, RN, pre-hospital care coordinator, Huntington Hospital, and Lyn Riley, RN, held a mobile intensive care nurse (MICN) development course for 35 emergency room nurses from all over Los Angeles County. MICNs answer radio calls from paramedics in the field en route to a hospital, allowing care to begin even before the patient arrives. Roger Yang, MD, base hospital medical director, Huntington Hospital, and medical director, Pasadena Fire Department also participated in the training.

Thank you to Pasadena Fire Department Station 33 for hosting the hands-on trauma course and for participating in the event, along with firefighters from South Pasadena Fire Department, San Marino Fire Department, and Arcadia-Monrovia Search and Rescue!
