Things Just Got Real: Violent Encounters and Team Safety
Description: We teach providers to ensure scene safety and we pound into their heads. Sometimes, despite the most carefully laid plans, and thoughtful preparation, things just go bad. What begins as a simple medical call can quickly reach critical danger. Sometimes, the situation changes so rapidly we don’t have the chance to extricate ourselves. Join us for case studies and discussion on how to deal with these encounters, as well as solutions you can implement at your agency to improve provider safety.
- The student will identify some of the challenges that occur in EMS that we haven’t been trained for.
- The student will explain how to mitigate scene hazards as they present themselves.
- The student will list solutions that can be implemented at the agency level to improve provider safety.
