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
B: Chief Complaint
D: Critical Findings
E: Interventions provided
CPR card prices increasing
We have been notified by the American Heart Association and our distributor that the cost of eCards is going up. Unfortunately, we have to pass this cost increase onto our instructors, as it would cost our Training Center money if we kept it the same. This will be the first rise we have had in BLS cards in many years.
As of January 1st, 2019, the cost for e-Cards for our Training Center Instructors will be $6.00/each for BLS/ACLS/PALS cards and $20.00/each for all Heartsaver Cards, with the exception of K-12 cards which will be $2.50/each.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to e-mail Scott.Bagg@cvmc.org
