New COVID-19 Class Procedures
We have adapted our CPR + First Aid classes to follow CDC guidelines. Please review the following procedures carefully.
Up to 35 people can attend each CPR + First Aid class.
Each person must pre-register for the class they are interested in taking.
Classes will be split into two parts. The first part will be a virtual class that is approximately 3.5 hours long and attended virtually via a GoToMeeting. The second part will be an in-person skills assessment that is approximately 15 minutes long and will be held either at your business or organization or at our Cypress Medical Center. Both segments are taught and reviewed by a certified instructor.
When you sign-up for your class you will be assigned a time anywhere from 2-5pm the same day of your class to come take your in-person skills assessment. Four people can take the skills assessment at one time. This part takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.
Each person must sign into the virtual training session on their own phone or their own computer to be counted as present. No sharing is allowed.
In order to receive your CPR + First Aid certificate you must complete both the go-to virtual training class as well as the in-person skills assessment.
All participants must bring a mask with them to the in-person skills assessment and wear it at all times. Gloves are required at all times as well. Gloves will be provided for you when you arrive to take your skills assessment.
We ask that you please bring a canned good to your skills assessment for donation to a local food bank.

With the return to fall sports like football, doctors expect to see an increase in mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI), commonly known as concussions. But you don’t have to be an athlete to sustain an mTBI. Daily life can cause one if you jostle your head. You do not have to lose consciousness to be diagnosed with an mTBI. That’s a myth and one best left in the past.
Perhaps it isn’t politically correct to say that our military men and women are heroes, but at America’s ER, we believe they are. Whatever branch of service they are in, they serve you and me and all our other neighbors in this great country of ours.
We are all so glad that spring is here after the long winter of Covid, lockdowns, and cabin fever! At least I am, aren’t you? But it’s been so long since we were able to get out and enjoy the mild weather some of us have forgotten what to do with this freedom. So we’ve decided to give you some ideas, along with safety tips that will help you enjoy all Houston has to offer in the spring.
You ignored all the warnings and fell off the ladder no one was holding steady for you. You caught your toe in the lawn mower when you were wearing flipflops to do the chore. You can’t keep anything down and it’s the middle of the night. Your chest hurts and you’re afraid it might be a heart attack.
You are enjoying a day at the park with your young child and his friends. You’re relaxed as you chat with the other moms and watch your children playing together. Some of them seem like little monkeys as they climb to the top of the monkey bars and swing back and forth on a rope swing. And then it happens.
Everyone at sometime in their life has suffered a pricked finger or skinned knee. When you look at the result, you see what appears to be a solid red liquid oozing (or flowing) from the wound. But looks can be deceiving!
