What Is Your Non-Emergency Percentage?

Share

medicsmalefemaleDuring this weeks Office Hours Jim, Josh and Dave talk about the never ending flow of non-emergency calls and how that can numb us as EMS providers. It’s important not get complacent and to properly assess each patient. However don’t you think that the crying wolf we deal with in EMS can easily make us fall into just what these patients sometimes perceive us as – A “taxi ride” to the hospital.

Why Does EMS Have Such A High Turnover?

Share

EMS1  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. Are teaching and supervisory positions the only rungs in the ladder?

This week we had two guests join us from the EMS Flight and RN fields and the discussion went to everything from education and pay to what may be most important of all – action.

Take a listen and let your thoughts on this topic below.

Is The 9/11 Memorial Too Commercial?

Share

911MWith the anniversary of 9/11 tomorrow. Hosts Jim, Dave and Josh had a bit of a discussion about the Memorial itself. Mainly how many feel it is designed to earn revenue more than anything else. That can be hard to argue with the high price of entry, t-shirt sales and offerings of statue of liberty miniatures and jewerly designs.

Have you been to the Memorial? What do you think? Is it too costly and does the sale of tourist items lessen the meaning of this place of remembrance?
