Close to a hundred Delhi Police officers attended a special workshop on roadside trauma safety management in southeast Delhi on Saturday.
The workshop was organised at the Apollo Hospital auditorium on Saturday afternoon with a collaborative effort by the Apollo Hospital and personnel of the Delhi Police posted at the southeast district.
The workshop saw the participation of Ajay Chaudhary, additional commissioner of police (southeast) and Jai Deep Gupta, Managing Director, Apollo Hospital along with 98 police personnel.
"Doctors, paramedics, 10 inspectors, 18 sub-inspectors and around 70 personnel posted at more than 17 police stations under the jurisdiction of the southeast district police attended the workshop," said an officer.
The workshop, police said, was oriented towards 'First Attention' to be paid to a victim or someone sustaining an injury at a road accident.
"Since the police are usually the first point of contact in case of a road accident, it was necessary for the personnel to understand how to attend to such a victim at the spot itself. The general perception amongst many is that taking a victim to the hospital immediately is of vital significance. However, how a victim is lifted and transported from the spot to the hospital is also equally important," the officer said.
