  1. I just saw a few posts online from people saying they know of out of state EMS units being deployed to NY to cover due to COVID-19. Anyone have more information?
  2. Makes me wonder if this will drive some providers out of the field once this is all said and done.
  3. I have seen this idea being brought up on social media. What are your thoughts?
  4. Hi everyone! Just checking in to see what different areas of the country are doing as far as equipment, training and any other changes that are a result of the pandemic. I look forward to chatting with everyone.
  5. Hi @EMT2020 I am assuming you are getting in trouble for "being compassionate"? I was a little confused with the post.
  6. Looks like the Mass companies just keep on coming north.... https://www.conwaydailysun.com/business/local/action-ambulance-expanding-life-support-services/article_0fdaeca6-0578-11ea-9a0d-2b2874d78876.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook&utm_campaign=user-share&fbclid=IwAR0_8A8lkyJehQ5x1NhdYXLnzdTGT4aLgUmKbzmU1z0xcyXAR-dm2ADUmis
  7. Could this be the future? I found this interesting article on ZDNet about the use of the new cellular technology to provide real time interaction with physician at the hospital. Is this something you would embrace or would you feel like someone is looking over your shoulder all the time? https://www.zdnet.com/video/how-to-make-the-most-of-big-data-in-your-organisation/
  8. She said she is leaving the job due to a "toxic and dangerous environment" and wrote a letter to the city explaining why. How many of you out there are close to experiencing this? Here is the full article: https://fox8.com/2019/08/13/i-team-paramedic-writes-explosive-letter-to-city-leaders/?fbclid=IwAR2MPc9D5iZ2qHHdXcIfJ9LQ-GcpuZvK6BLjOUV0nbRGqOR8DHPeM0HOlkQ
  9. Hi, Can you clarify what a NEMT company is? I have not heard of it.
  10. No problem! Good luck with your career pursuit. Come back sometime and tell us how your course went.
  11. @emtwannbe3, Your post indicates to me more of a desire to enhance the current education that first respondents currently possess about behavior emergencies rather than going into EMS. Given your academic history, you seem to be in a great position to format your ideas into a program that would help everyone involved with patients experiencing an issue. I would recommend seeking some ride-along time to understand the challenges of the first respondents to gain insight on the real views first respondents have about patients that suffer from psychiatric or behavioral emergencies.
  12. @JebNickle Does it still show on your record? I think that would be the first I would check.
  13. Just curious, who verifies your training submitted to the NREMT site? Does your medical director, state or another entity? I heard some EMS agencies are allowed to do it for their own members. Not sure how I feel about that.
  14. Interesting. I think a lot will have to do with how management handles the information on the files. Will it be archived securely in the event of litigation or will it be reviewed for quality improvement/witch-hunt reasons? Would medicare / medicaid want access to the files to validate billing?
  15. @paramedicmike , I do not disagree with you. But how does the process get started? If we require new EMTs to have degrees or to attend programs that require substantially more education and course work the industry risks a decline in new EMTs entering the profession. In many areas, there is a shortage of EMTs already. Thoughts?
