John Ashbridge Memorial Fund

Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation is grateful for the opportunity to create a special fund in memory of John Ashbridge, who served on our Board of Directors for a full term, including a period as Vice Chair.

John was very generous with his time and talents and put his legendary voice behind many of our projects. More importantly, he fully put his heart into his work in support of Royal Columbian.

Donations to the fund will allow the Foundation to support the needs of the hospital, including its Code Blue Team. This specialized group, composed of health care professionals, rush to the location of distressed patients at the hospital and start immediate resuscitative efforts.

Thank you for helping to honour the memory of John Ashbridge by supporting this fund.

More Information

When time is critical and a patient requires immediate resuscitation, every second counts. Royal Columbian Hospital’s Code Blue Team is a specialized group, composed of health care professionals, that rush to the location of distressed patients in the hospital and start immediate resuscitative efforts.

Most often, the Code Blue Team responds to respiratory arrests or cardiac arrests. The survival of a patient in distress can depend on the team’s quick actions. Time is critical, and so is being prepared for a real-life code blue, knowing what life-saving equipment is available and where it is located.

The research shows that CPR compressions are instrumental in saving lives during an arrest. Health care providers benefit from practicing their skills during realistic ‘mock’ scenarios and reviewing the results. The ongoing training keeps them sharp and strengthens the team’s communication and familiarity.

As a hospital that cares for some of the province’s most seriously ill and injured patients, as well as being BC’s busiest cardiac care centre, Royal Columbian’s Code Blue Team is an integral component of the exceptional care provided here.
