Hurry Up And Get Them In The Ambulance | The New Load and Go?

Sometimes a hectic scene or stressful call can have you hurrying your EMS care or transport. While it may not always affect patient care or outcome, it can give a poor perception if pictures are taken. It can also put you as the provider at risk depending on the patient, transport or details you might miss.  This week I focused on a discussion over at the JEMS page on Facebook regarding a picture taken at what I am sure was a hectic scene.


Take a look at this video and post below what you see going wrong in the picture. Can you understand the short cuts that seem to be taken or is there no excuse no matter the scene or call type?

EMS – A Jury Of Your Peers

Ever feel like you get judged by your fellow EMS peers because you did or didn’t do something. Maybe you’ve sat at quarters and listened to another crew talk about a medic or EMT and how they reacted on a call. Does this make you more agressive or even timid when it comes to your patient care? What are your feelings on this and how we can avoid being a backseat driver on someone elses 911 call.
