10 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana By PAUL R. LEINGANG - Message editor Nurse pleased that TResusci Anne'I joins St. Joseph parish What is it like to breathe life back into someone? It's a lot easier to learn if you have a real life person to work on -- or the next best thing, a Resusci Anne. Judy Wittgen, parish nurse at St. Joseph Church, Evansville, recently received the gift of a life-like CPR train- ing unit from the national Au- tomobile Dealers Association. Evansville automobile dealer Pat O'Daniel made the presen- tation, May 6. Wittgen will use the life- sized doll for her CPR classes once a month. Classes are open to members of St. Joseph Church and 'to any other inter- ested persons in the commu- nity. Previously, Wittgen had to rent a training doll, in order to conduct classes. Now, she said, this "newest member of our parish staff' will save money and enable her to expand her teaching activities. St. Joseph and Holy Re- deemer Churches are the only two parishes in the Diocese of Evansville to. have parish nurses on staff. Wittgen works .half time at the parish, and half of the time she spends in parish ministry is spent in making home visits. Father Fred Englert, pastor, said a parish nurse is not to re- place the professional. He said a parish nurse is able to do such things as help educate the people, help them understand medication, and teach them home health care procedures. Wittgen has been working at St. Joseph since March 1995.
