Early in EMS education we are presented with the idea that "time" is a factor in much of what we do. Golden Hours, Platinum Ten Minutes, Time is Muscle etc.
While some of these can help us with our treatment and transport decisions, have you ever wondered or questioned if they are getting in the way of patient care?
As EMS providers we bring much of the Emergency Department to the patient. Even more so we are expected to provide certain levels of care to our patients prior to delivery to these ED's.
I am sure that you have been questioned or made to feel like less of a provider when you don't provide certain aspects of care. Even when it was due to trying to follow dictated "time" constraints that are expected and may have been in the patients better interest to transport rather than perform a skill prior to arrival at the ED.
So what do you think? Are these time markers valuable to us as providers or helpful?
Do we end up focusing too much on them and not on what is best for the patient?

Dave deBronkart has a well-earned reputation as an e-Patient. An internationally recognized speaker, author, and health policy advisor, he has words of strength for patients for sure.
In addition, he works with physicians, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies to help them Let Patients Help!
When most manufacturers decide to create a new product, they do market research and conduct focus groups to determine in advance what the consumers want.
In medicine, it's mostly about what the doctors want.
But the doctors are not the end-user consumers in medicine, they are talented and experienced personnel, but the end-user consumers are the patients.
Come hear what Dave believes are the many ways that Patients can help improve healthcare.

Join us as we talk with Paul Szablowski, the Senior Vice President of Communications and Image at Texas Health Resources, about “Creating a Fascinating Patient Experience.” Paul contends that treating patients should not be limited to prescribing medication and ordering tests. Instead, hospitals should re-examine the entire patient environment starting from the minute patients walk through the door, including lighting in the building and the type of questions that are asked. All these items are important as healthcare organizations find new and exciting ways to engage patients and shift towards value-based, holistic care.
Medication errors happen at home, in the hospital and in the pharmacy.
We will be interviewing Maria L. Franco PharmD, CGP who will share her expertise on some of the most common errors and how they can be avoided. She will be sharing actual stories of how medication misuse and improper use can change the outcome of patient care.
Learn how medication dependency and abuse may be avoided with a Designated Medication Manager and how errors in the hospitals may be prevented with patient and family participation.
