As EMS providers we get a lot of training on many topics. Cardiac, pharmacology, IV skills, airway management etc.
But what about training on keeping us safe and preventing injuries. I mean beyond a handbook, OSHA video or a gentle, "Be safe out there".
Should EMS agencies offer their paramedics and EMTs real formal training on driving the ambulance, lifting patients and situational awareness?
Wouldn't training like this not only prevent injuries, but also save on the financial end in lost wages, ambulance repairs and insurance. Maybe even prevent the ending of an EMS career too early.
Join us for some thoughts on this and bring us how your agency trains or doesn't train you in safety.

During this episode of EMS Office Hours Greg and Jim came off the Boot Camp session on Medical Control Consults and brought up the topic on giving reports to other care providers, particularly during patient handoffs. They also talked about some specific safety awareness issues when riding in the back of the ambulance beyond simple seatbelt use. Take a listen and be sure to leave a comment or two.
Recent two FDNY EMS Paramedics have been accused with faking an ambyulance call report after some confusion with a DNR. We all know that the Call Report is a legal document. But did these medics act on compassion based on the patients and family wishes? Or did they make such a grave error as to cost them their jobs and even jail time?
Join us for a special live show and give your thoughts on the topic.
Here is a link to the article in the Staten Island Advance. It should get your juices flowing for sure.

This week we discuss the language of EMS. Using profesional communication as a standard vs communicating amoungst each other with common EMS slang. Is there a place for EMS slang or should we do away with it and focus on a standard of communication that leaves no room for error?
We also plan on talking about EMS Facebook pages and the culture of negativity as well as answer a few questions sent in by listeners.

Get ready for another rapid fire episode where anything goes. EMS is a great professional with lots of topics to discus and many opinions to be heard. Come listen to the latest in EMS culture and join in the conversation via phone or chat, or just listen in as Jim, Josh and Dave give their take on the latest in EMS.
Is EMS the stepping stone to other professions? Do providers leave EMS to pursue better career options when they find so few in EMS. Sometimes its not about pay. Its can be about career movement, job satisfaction and options for the long haul.
Is teaching and supervisory positions the only rungs in the ladder?
What do you think has the constant revolving door in EMS spinning?
Join us tonight for the Office Hours opinion and some thoughts on how to keep providers who bring experinece to the field.
Last week we talked about EMS being a hobby. This week we steer the conversation a little bit and discuss the sharing of responsibilities.
EMTs doing ALS, firefighters doing EMS and now even law enforcement giving drugs that traditionally only advanced level EMS providers could give.
Do these types of skill set cross overs help EMS as a profession or do they further the perception that ANYONE can do our job at minimal cost.
Join us with your thoughts.
