Basic Life Support (BLS) for Healthcare Providers

The BLS for Healthcare Providers course is designed to provide a wide variety of certified or noncertified, licensed or nonlicensed, healthcare professionals with the skills to keep people alive until they can be brought to a hospital or be treated with more advanced lifesaving measures.

The BLS course covers:

  • two-rescuer scenarios and use of the bag-valve mask
  • foreign-body airway obstruction (conscious and unconscious)
  • automated external defibrillation (includes child AED update)
  • special resuscitation situations
  • other cardiopulmonary emergencies

BLS training is intended for certified or noncertified, licensed or nonlicensed, healthcare professionals, including:

  • emergency medical technicians
  • respiratory, physical, and occupational therapists
  • physician's assistants
  • residents or fellows
  • medical or nursing students in training

In addition, BLS training can be appropriate for first responders, such as police officers and firefighters, as well as for laypeople whose work brings them into contact with members of the public, such as school, fitness center, or hotel and restaurant employees.

Students must pass a written exam and skills test in order to qualify for a BLS for Healthcare Provider Course Completion Card.

Course Overview

The Heartsaver® Bloodborne Pathogens course teaches employees how to protect themselves and others from being exposed to blood or blood-containing materials. It is designed specifically for workers with a reasonable chance of coming into contact with bloodborne pathogens -- including correctional officers, childcare workers, security guards, maintenance workers, school personnel, hotel housekeepers, health and fitness club staff, and tattoo artists. The course uses the PACT™ acronym (Protect, Act, Clean, Tell) and slogan, "Make a PACT, Know How to Act," to help students learn and easily recall bloodborne pathogens training. Helps employers meet OSHA requirements for bloodborne pathogens training when paired with site-specific instruction.

After successfully completing this course, students will be able to:

  • explain the importance of taking the Heartsaver Bloodborne Pathogens course
  • define bloodborne pathogens
  • describe the four main steps for staying safe when facing an occupational exposure
  • discuss how universal precautions, personal protective equipment, and handwashing can protect them from infection
  • recognize warning signs and labels for biohazards
  • recall how to safely remove gloves
  • discuss how to dispose of sharps and other blood-containing items
  • identify the types of spills and methods to clean them
  • discuss their exposure control plan.
