Better EMS Provider Screening

This week Josh and I discuss better screening methods for EMS providers. Why doesn’t EMS insist on better screening of potential EMT’s and paramedics? With the amount of responsibility we are entrusted with, something a little more than “scouts honor” should be used as background checks. This was an interesting episode with a caller who while new to EMS talks about her experiences with background checks and recent career decisions.
