  1. I am sure someone knows someone in that station that recorded it. Whoever recorded it and sent it out should be fired for acts that are unprofessional. For the purpose of discussion, what if this was was just a scanner buff that recorded it and sent it out?
  2. I assume you are directing that to those that posted the video.
  3. Tasteless - Yes HIPAA violation, most likely not. "HIPAA broadly permits ambulances services and dispatch agencies to communicate any treatment-related information over the airwaves." Here is a great read: HIPAA Didn’t Kill the Radio Star http://psc.apcointl.org/2010/08/26/hipaa-radio-emd/
  4. A New Hampshire private ambulance service will be making house calls after a person overdoes on opioids to give them Narcan and Narcan administration training. Thoughts? http://www.fosters.com/article/20160410/NEWS/160419896/0/SEARCH
  5. This is disgusting. The ambulance company that suspended him should be made public. http://abc7.com/1053762/
  6. I was reflecting today, and wondered what the new, young EMTs think or feel about 9/11. What have you experienced?
  7. I wonder if he is asking the Police department and every other service to donate their time? Does this not sit well with anyone else? http://www.post-gazette.com/news/state/2015/08/20/Philadelphia-state-ask-medics-to-help-during-pope-francis-visit-pennsylvania/stories/201508200181
  8. Hopefully soon. As the evidence mounts I think there will be more liability to keep using them.
  9. I have been asked some crazy questions over the years, what are some that you have been asked?
  10. I heard that Massachusetts is using a new way (NCCP) to renew NREMT certs. Has anyone had any experience with this yet?
  11. Has anyone installed it yet? What are your thoughts?
  12. Two big guys becoming one: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20150730006559/en/Envision-Healthcare-Enters-Definitive-Agreement-Acquire-RuralMetro#.VbrK6vlVgSU What are your thoughts?
  13. JUAB COUNTY — An ambulance paramedic injured in a rollover accident while transporting a patient was still in critical condition Tuesday afternoon. The accident occurred Friday on northbound I-15 near 12000 South in Draper around 2:30 a.m., according to Utah Highway Patrol. Juab County EMTs, Elton Castleman and Jodi Jones, were transporting a psychiatric patient in an ambulance when he caused the vehicle to roll, UHP Lt. Jeff Nigbur said. See the rest of the story here.
  14. I heard some states are liking this because the EMT level can easily administer this with minimal training. Here is the article about the auto-injector. http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm391465.htm What are you thoughts?
