    Community Paramedic Programs

    Very interesting! Definitely something for me to read more about. Hopefully, however the pessimist in me finds it highly unlikely ambulance companies will be able to find motivated paramedics to provide high quality community paramedicine. Ambulance companies are having a hard time enough time...

    Community Paramedic Programs

    Sort of. Most counties when public health nursing started provided case management services for everyone in the county. Funding dried up so now it’s mostly grants tied to specific populations for case management services or hospital funding for case management services to prevent readmissions...

    Community Paramedic Programs

    Their website is horrible. This makes me question how valid/how much weight any of their certifications are if they can't even run an up to date website. https://www.ibscertifications.org/exam/cpc-exam-faqs Q: What are the eligibility requirements for taking the CP-C Exam? A: Exam...

    EMS employment in Bay Area California.

    AMR is a mess but at least it's an organized mess which has been consistently functioning as an organized mess for years versus other companies who have no previous 911 experience getting 911 contracts

    EMS employment in Bay Area California.

    This was their go to while trying to build into a IFT ambulance company. They're still steadily growing so props to the owner but it's still a shady mom and pop shop.

    EMS employment in Bay Area California.

    Did Bayshore really sell out to Protransport? Very interesting If you just want to do CCT in Contra Costa County, I would apply for AMR Sutter. You should ask but I'm sure they do all the NICU/PICU for Suter if they have the IFT contract. Similar to how Rural/Metro did all the NICU/PICU for...

    Dying patient left on apartment floor

    https://www.kansas.com/news/politics-government/article250294435.html This article says “Wichita Fire Department EMTs”. And “Sedgwick County EMS came back” Sounds like fire and EMS are two separate entities. If so, I don’t agree with Wichita FF/EMTs being sanctioned per my points above.

    Dying patient left on apartment floor

    What were the FF/EMTs supposed to do? Transport the patient in the non existent fire ambulance? Transport the patient in the fire truck? Transport the patient on a sheet? Steal EMS’s gurney for transport? The FF/EMTs can’t force anybody to transport, don’t have the proper vehicle to do so, and...

    CPI training

    Thinking about it, CPI might be more for insurance and liability purposes. Hey this staff member had to go hands on but didn’t use CPI approved techniques so...

    CPI training

    You forgot mastering your supportive stance and not standing directly in front of the patient. Sideways/slanted stance. I wonder if CPI is part of the CMS audit/checklist every hospital has to go through.

    Falcon Critical Care Transport Nor-Cal

    Falcon Ambulance CCT is their name. Has nothing to do with what level the actual ambulance is running at. Confusing, I know. I swear I've seen some ambulances without CCT in the name (probably due to the confusion)-so maybe they're rebranding? The archive link shows the company was founded by...

    Falcon Critical Care Transport Nor-Cal

    Looks like they're rebranding. https://www.falconambulance.com/ They're probably called Falcon CCT because it was founded by nurses who probably ran CCT calls back when it first started. https://web.archive.org/web/20141011051420/http://www.falconambulance.com/about-us/ They then morphed into...

    Sacramento EMS (Medic Ambulance, Norcal Ambulance)

    Medic Ambulance in Vallejo might allow you to work 911 after X amount of time Otherwise both are just IFT companies. Medic Sac is different than Medic Vallejo

    Medic Ambulance ALS-RN

    ALS meaning ALS 911 calls or ALS IFT calls? Technically, California allows RN's to response to ALS prehospital calls. 1797.56. “Authorized registered nurse,” “mobile intensive care nurse,” or “MICN” means a registered nurse who is functioning pursuant to Section 2725 of the Business and...
