The Nurse of the Day program provides basic volunteer medical services, consultations and referrals on a limited, as-needed basis for legislators, staff and lobbyists — and occasionally visitors — in the Capitol (Jonah Building) during the legislative session.
The following dates are still available, all others have been filled.
- March 1
- March 5
- March 7
If you are available and interested in being Nurse for the Day on any of the dates listed above please contact Rose at the Wyoming Hospital Association at 307-632-9344 or email email@example.com
Services at Medical Aid Station are provided as a courtesy by the Wyoming Hospital Association and the Wyoming Medical Society, and operate on a totally volunteer basis.
The Nurse of the Day is generally asked to report to the Jonah Building before the morning session convenes, is free to leave the building for lunch, and usually ends the day around mid-afternoon. When in the Jonah Building, the nurse is given a cell phone and the Medical Aid Station is also equipped with a direct phone line.
Services provided by the Nurse of the Day program are very limited and given only on a voluntary basis. Therefore, the Medical Aid Station does not qualify — nor should it be considered — as the “first responder” option in medical emergency situations. Always dial 911 in case of an emergency.
The Nurse of the Day can provide basic health care services such as blood pressure checks or treatment of colds, flu, headaches, minor injuries etc. Referrals will be made for more complex or chronic health care problems. The Medical Aid Station is equipped with basic emergency supplies, such as a portable AED (automatic external defibrillator), but all volunteers are instructed to dial 911 in the case of an emergency situation.
