Part 1: Pediatric patient safety needs in ambulances
bkelley posted a topic in Patient CareLets solve a problem. What does a pediatric patient need, to be safe in our ambulances? For arguments sake... lets call a pediatric patient a child between 5 and 99 pounds. Parts to discuss: 1. Ambulance environment (e.g. the equipment we carry, how we carry and secure it, our own bodies not restrained while we transport) 2. What do we do, or not do to make sure that a kid is as safe as possible in our ambulances (what if we wreck while transporting them?) 3. What does the kid expect from us? Do they consider their own safety or is that our job? 4. How can we meet their safety needs better?
