Real Life EMS 2008


Here is the first issue of Real Life EMS for 2008. Click on the cover to enlarge it.

In case you don't get my not-so-subtle point, the professionalism we want must be earned. The respect we crave is earned. The aggressive protocols we want--you guessed it--earned.

Be a clinician. Dig into some research and make an educated stand to your medical director or regional authority. Don't whine about your protocols not being as good as the next region or state.

Change begins within. You'll be surprised what can happen.

Providers should realize that the grass isn't always greener on the other side - the spinal rule out protocols in Maine are the envy of many providers across the country. Or just take a look at DC Fire and EMS - they are HOPING to get valium and morphine by mid summer - for the first time ever on ambulances!
