  1. @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?
  2. I would say that if the EMT was not accessing privileged information from run reports or other confidential documents then there is no expectation of HIPAA protection. If they are just regurgitating the news that everyone else posses then the EMT would be all set. If the EMT is acting as a representative of the organization as he speaks of the incident, there may be internal policy issues but no HIPAA issues. I look forward to what everyone else has on this.
  3. I was reading the article about the Woman sentenced to prison for biting paramedic and it made me wonder how many of you have been assaulted so I created a poll. Share your story below.

  5. I have been reading a lot about a push back against 24hr shifts. I figured I would bring the question here where some real answers can be had instead of the short snippets of dredge that Facebook seems to attract. What are your thoughts?
  6. What is everyone's thoughts on this? This is a change.org petition to "Allow paramedics to continue to save lives with endotracheal intubation!" Should the will of the people supersede any data that says the opposite?

    I am curious what some of the different protocols across the country, and other countries say.
  12. I have seen a lot of ads lately from different colleges that are offering bachelor degrees in EMS or EMS Management. In checking their websites it looks like they offer 40-50 credits for a Paramedic and 12 or so for EMT. What are your thoughts on this? Is this moving us in the right direction?
