Covington Teacher Receives Lifesaver Award

Denise Henson

When a coworker suddenly collapsed and went unconscious at Holmes High School, special education teacher Denise Henson, responded with Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) which helped to save her coworker’s life.   Mrs. Henson’s heroic effort hasn't gone unnoticed.  At the Covington City Commission meeting Tuesday night, David J. Geiger, Covington Emergency Medical Services Director, presented Mrs. Henson with the Covington Fire Department’s “Citizen Lifesaver Award.”  The award recognizes citizens who perform the necessary skills to save a life, said Geiger who praised Mrs. Henson for her skills and her willingness to help. 

“She assessed her coworker, found that the patient was unresponsive and pulseless, initiated CPR with chest compressions and instructed other bystanders to call 911 and retrieve the Automated External Defibrillator,’’ Geiger said. “After approximately 1 minute of CPR the patient regained a pulse and shortly thereafter regained consciousness. Mrs. Henson stayed with her, to monitor her condition, until emergency responders arrived. Upon the arrival of our emergency responders, the patient was conscious and alert but still seriously ill, requiring skilled care throughout transport and upon admission to the hospital.’’ 

The incident happened in December and the coworker has since been released from the hospital.  Geiger said often paramedics, firefighters and police officers are thought of as First Responders.  But bystanders are sometimes the first to respond, he said. . 

“Those citizens who have taken it upon themselves to obtain the necessary training so that should the need arise, they will be prepared to react and help a fellow citizen in their time of need. Even with the training, it is impossible to know how one will react until actually faced with the situation. In this case, the bystanders, and specifically Mrs. Henson reacted calmly and quickly.’’

As for Mrs. Henson, she just quietly said she was glad to be there to help.
