Well done Mark and team at the Quest Apartments at Manly Wharf for receiving the Heart Safe Hotel Check from Heart Safe Australia for having processes and staff awareness ready in case of a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) at Quest Apartments in beautiful Manly.
In Australia, approximately 30,000 people sustain cardiac arrest outside hospital (575 Australian’s every week).
ONLY an average of only 9% of its victims in Australia survive
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) knows no boundaries
- It can happen anytime, anywhere and to anyone
- Early deﬁbrillation is the single most effective treatment for Sudden Cardiac Arrest
- Deﬁbrillation within three minutes of collapse can increase the chance of survival to over 70%
Together as an industry we can save more lives!
The Accommodation Association of Australia (AAoA) in conjunction with Heart Safe Australia and Mindray Australia aim to create more Heart Safe environments across Australia by creating an industry standard placing deﬁbrillators in Hotels along with ensuring staff are adequately informed on CPR —allowing you to simply, safely and effectively help someone save a life.
