SF Library Workers May Get Training to Stop Heroin Overdoses
The idea surfaced after an addict was found dead in one of the Civic Center library's restrooms in early February, the San Francisco Chronicle reports Sunday.
In a Feb. 28 letter to his staff that was obtained by the Chronicle, City Librarian Luis Herrera said that a decision about training librarians to treat overdose with naloxone will not be made until the issue is fully explored. He added that if done, it would be on "a strictly voluntary basis."
What do you think of this idea? Would you volunteer to give naloxone if necessary?
