EMS Is Equal To SNF Staff

This weeks on the show Josh and I talk about some very similar things between EMS and SNF staff. This is post rant I had with my years of abuse by said staff. Josh pointed out some things though that I do think we should all keep in mind when we respond to the Nursing Home call with a report of any one of the following:

This is not my patient
Her Pulse Ox is 74% (but for you its 98% a miracle indeed)
The DNR dementia patient is not acting right
He rolled out of bed and no injury but policy requires an 911 EMS call to the ED.

Yeah the list can go on, but go take a listen to the show and see how these calls can make some sense.

Take a listen below and be sure and visit ITunes and take a few minutes to leave us a rating and review.
