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.

Remembering Terry J. Letsinger , M.D., F.A.C.E.P.
It is with tremendous sadness and a heavy heart that we report the loss of one of our own. Dr. Terry Letsinger, a brilliant doctor and founding physician at America’s ER, passed away from non-COVID-19 related causes on December 31, 2020.
He is survived by his amazingly kind and sweet wife Christine and their three children. Since 2014, Dr. Letsinger has tirelessly served the Woodlands/Magnolia community, never failing to provide exceptional, cutting edge medical care to our patients. He was an openly generous, unbelievably funny, compassionate, dedicated, gentle giant of a man who fiercely loved his family, was committed to the absolute best care of his patients, and was incomparably passionate about life.
The America’s ER family, our community, and this world have undoubtedly lost a unique soul who was unafraid to live life to the fullest, always encouraged others to do the same, and never shied away from pouring everything he had into making others smile through his antics and humor. He will truly be missed.
