    Mental health

    I guess I just need to vent for a moment. I'm so sick of the stigma that accompanies any discussion of mental health in EMS. it's an embarrassment to our profession that when I try to have an honest discussion about a provider that I'm worried about I'm told "they'll get over it" and I...

    Who's fully staffed?

    I keep hearing that there's no shortage of EMS providers, but I'm curious how many of your agencies are fully staffed. In central PA, a paramedic (who's not a Effup) can have their pick of jobs and with some negotiating skill, get a very decent wage.

    No ETI.

    I want my providers to stop intubating arrests, and you’d think I asked them to cut off their own foot. How many services are using SGAs as the first line airway for “normal” adult arrests?

    CPR report card

    Does anyone here use a "CPR Report Card' to provide feedback to the providers after an arrest? I've seen a few examples, but can't seem to find them now! I'm looking for a standardized format for reporting following each arrest.

    Agency PR

    How often is your agency in the news? We send a press release out almost every week. We are on TV several times a month and the TV stations now know that that can always come to us for any thing that is first responder related. This week they did a whole piece on our new Zoll X series monitors...
