When They Ask For A Doctor and You Show Up

EMS This is a great reboot session with Greg Friese and remember that EMS Boot Camp sessions can now be found at
For this episode we ask: “Have you ever helped the man down, stopped at an MVA or even performed CPR while off duty?”

As EMS professionals we sometimes find ourselves in a position to act while off duty.
For this Office Hours Greg and Jim talked a little about doing just that. You never know when someone may call out “Is there a doctor in the house?”. You would probably be surprised that they would prefer an EMT anyway.

I would love to hear your off duty story. Share it below in the comments.

It all started with a discussion on geriatric patients and being a good customer service EMS provider.

During this episode Ted Setla stopped in with info on the Feb 12th premiere of The Chronicles of EMS as well. This was back in 2010 but very worth watching even today.

This was a fast 30 minutes. Be sure to leave your comments below.

Why Checking The Ambulance Goes Beyond A Check Sheet

EMS1We all have to check the ambulance at the beginning of our shifts. Yes tedious, yes at times it makes you think why you have to look for the ring cutter or occlusive dressing every time. As if someone is moving them around each day playing a little game of EMS Concentration.

Take a listen to this weeks podcast and my take and some tips on the ambulance check off.

What Is Your Non-Emergency Percentage?

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?

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.
