Resident Revived at NYC Hotel

On Monday, June 7, 2021, at 5:27 pm, Residential Aide Sharisse Moorehead and Arrow Supervisor Muyideen Jimoh discovered a resident lying on the floor of his room at a transitional living facility in New York City. 

When discovered, the resident only showed faint signs of breathing. Quickly, RA Moorehead tried to obtain a verbal response from the resident by calling his name, but he was unresponsive. While R.A. Moorehead called 911 to request emergency medical assistance and informed the Operations Coordinator Kariq Hampton of the incident, Arrow Security Supervisor Jimoh performed the sternum rub and continued to call out the resident’s name. However, the afflicted individual was still unresponsive to both physical and verbal stimuli. 

Jimoh then administered 4mg of Narcan to the resident’s left nostril and continued with the sternum rub to no avail. It was not until the second dose to the right nostril that he finally took a deep breath. Mr. Jimoh continued to perform the sternum rub and administered a third dose of Narcan to left nostril. At 5:36 pm, the resident began to respond to the physical and verbal stimuli, and his breathing returned to normal.  Residential Aide Sharisse Moorehead and Arrow Security Supervisor Jimoh monitored the man until assistance arrived. EMS determined it would be in the patient’s best interest to take him to the hospital for further examination. At 5:56 pm, FDNY and EMS took the patient to a local medical center for observation and additional care.
