The District 6 Mission Statement     
"To coordinate quality pre-hospital care in a patient centered system through education, cooperation, and commitment”

Radio Transmission to CVMC 

Dr. Blum and Jess Cullen would like us to shorten our radio reports in order to free up the air for other services.  They just need “initials and DOB” and enough information to assign the patient appropriately upon arrival.  Both radio air-time and charge nurse attention is both valuable and Dr. Blum/Jess want to use both effectively.  Jess provided the format below that could be used for our radio reports.  Please see Dr. Blum or Jessica Cullen (in the ED) if you have questions.

District 6 Radio Report
A: Initials/DOB
B: Chief Complaint
C: Vitals
D: Critical Findings
    e.g.: hypoglycemia
    EKG abnormalities
    stroke findings
    obtunded
E: Interventions provided
F: ETA
