Will The Pandemic Be The “Thing” To Push EMS Forward?

On episode “this one” Jim, Dave and Josh talk about the growing changes in EMS since the pandemic began. Working in mobile units, ED overflows, giving vaccines and now working with mental health professionals as part of non emergent response.

Plus the increased role Community Paramedics are also playing to help provide better care and mitigate the spread of COVID.

Questions asked are:

Is this moving EMS forward?

Should we be financially compensated for it?

Should we just welcome the growth?

Or perhaps we should question some of these like the mental health response.

Finally, An App Just For EMS By EMS

This episode of the podcast is joined by Paramedic Matthew Monahemi, one of the founders of MURU. This new app is focused on the EMS provider. Super easy to use and the best part?

It is tailored to you the user.

Watch this episode to see how this all got started and get an inside look at the app itself. BTW – It’s free right now.

From the website:

“As medics ourselves, we were tired of getting solutions built for fire, police, or hospitals and repurposed for EMS. We treat patients alone or with one other clinician in situations a hospital will assign a whole team for. We’re sometimes treated as taxis, yet hospitals hold us to the same standards as their residents. We need solutions built from the ground up for us.”

Life After EMS | Do You Have A Plan

This first episode of 2021 is a bit of a change up for us. But we wanted to take a moment and give some tips and advice for your personal use.

So many EMS professionals live paycheck to paycheck and never plan for retirement, injury or even a career change.

It’s hard. You get your paycheck and honestly there isn’t much meat on the bone left to save or invest.

Welcome to EMS right?

Watch this episode to see how easy it is to start thinking about your future life after EMS. Josh shines in this episode sharing great insight into investing and his past life in the NYC financial sector.

I hope this episode gives you some ideas or at least gets you considering how you will move forward with your finances in 2021

Everything in EMS isn’t negative. If you just think of what may be simple like ABC’s. There is so much that encompasses that. You should be proud and acknowledge yourself for having that knowledge and privilege to apply it.

This was a fun episode and important to point out all we do everyday in EMS.
