    About Dr. Hallisy:


    Dr. Julia Hallisy obtained her BS in Biological Science from the University of San Francisco in 1984 and a second Bachelor’s degree from the University of California in Dental Sciences.

Since that time, she has been a full-time practicing San Francisco dentist.

    Her second child, Katherine Eileen, was diagnosed at five months of age with bilateral retinoblastoma. Dealing with her daughter’s life-threatening diagnosis, the many recurrences of cancer, and the subsequent treatments for the malignant and aggressive tumors marked the beginning an almost 20-year involvement in our healthcare system. The unique combination of her scientific training, her work as a healthcare provider, and guiding a child through a chronic illness has afforded her invaluable insight as an advocate for patients.
      
    Dr. Hallisy began to research the topic of patient safety in 1998. She has lobbied for health care reform in Washington, DC with Consumer’s Union.

    Dr. Hallisy is committed to and passionate about the subjects of patient safety, health care reform and medical error reduction. She is the founder and president of The Empowered Patient Coalition.

    Dr. Hallisy was born and raised in San Francisco, where she lives with her husband, John Hallisy, and their two sons, Daniel and Kevin. The Hallisy’s ten-year old daughter, Kate, lost her life-long battle with cancer in February 2000.

    Using Time To Guide EMS Patient Care

    in Education

    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?


    Join us for this episode as we discuss this and other popular EMS topics. Call in Toll Free or come into the chat room to share your opinion.

    Customer Service is something that I am always talking about.  Working within the senior care industry I marvelled at how Customer Service took on many forms.  I truly believe that my experiences with residents, family members and care professionals is what has shaped my view of Customer Care.
