TUALATIN, OREGON At a gathering of friends, the same group who regularly meets to discuss dog training at the Village Inn Tualatin Nurse Jill Miller was honored as a hero by Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue. About a month ago Jill sprang into action when a waitress came running over asking if anyone had a medical background because a lady was passed out and not breathing in a car. She asked for aspirin at the same time. The woman’s husband pulled in off the freeway and talked with restaurant staff to get help. While staff called 9-1-1 Jill a nurse with Kaiser Permanente ran outside to begin CPR. Just looking at the woman Jill thought she was dead.
Paramedic showed up shortly after and no body was sure is the woman would make it. TVFR called the Village Inn later that night to inform staff that the woman survived. She is still in the hospital. “Everyone should learn CPR and carry Aspirin,” said Jill Miller. Village Inn General Manager Ryan Sweeney is working with Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue to get CPR training for employees.
