Portsmouth Nurse Saves Student from Choking

Portsmouth Nurse Saves Student from Choking
Posted on 12/20/2018

In early December, Churchland Middle School nurse Lori Jensen, RN, used the Heimlich maneuver on a student who was choking. The object in the student’s throat was immediately dislodged, and the student was able to breathe. The life-saving maneuver and Nurse Jensen’s fast-acting skills saved the student from choking.

The School Board recognized Nurse Jensen during the Dec. 13 meeting, and praised her for helping a student in need.

We are so grateful for Nurse Jensen and all of our school nurses!
