Every EMS Psych Call Needs A Social Worker

… Said no one in EMS ever.

This episode of the show talks about the idea that social workers should be responding to EMS psychiatric calls instead of law enforcement.

Great for LE (we all know they hate those calls anyway). But bad for EMS.

Plus we talk about that age ole topic of EMS pay, provider retention and becoming an EMT or paramedic.

Adding More EMS To COVID-19 Response

With the healthcare profession under siege from the COVID-19 pandemic, we need more professionals providing care now.

But what is the best way to get providers out into the workforce? The NREMT made an attempt to get new providers out there but maybe just too weak of an attempt.

Are there better ways? Jim and guests talk about ways they think EMT’s and paramedics can be of use during this crisis.

Everything from reactivating retried members to rehiring past employees and perhaps putting providers in non essential areas of ED’s or ambulance departments.
