Earlier this week, South Shore Hospital EMS providers trained the public on how to administer Narcan at the one-year anniversary celebration of Project Outreach Plymouth. Our goal is to work with first responders and other neighboring entities, including the newly formed Plymouth Country Outreach H.O.P.E. (Help, Outreach, Prevention & Education), to help combat the opioid crisis in Massachusetts. Our EMS experts educated the public with hands-on tutorials on how to administer Narcan in the case of an overdose with the help of Mobile SimMan and the Mobile Simulation Lab sponsored by BEST Chevrolet. WATD interviewed our EMS providers about the important work we do with the community to help fight the opioid epidemic: http://hubs.ly/H08cFM80

A Throwback Thursday to Hospice of the South Shore's Grief Reflected event earlier this year. Artists were paired with members of the community who lost a loved one. Here, hospice nurse Teddy Decosta (right) poses with Sue (left) and Teddy's painting titled "Forever and Always, No Matter What," which was inspired by Sue's late partner, Kim. Sue said, "The experience to me was very moving, heartfelt. Not only did it show the love between me and Kimberly, I also got to know the nine others. In a way it brings them to life."
