Subject: COMPUTER ACCESS FOR EMS
The computer that is set up in the family room will become a “kiosk” type logon for family use to check email, etc. when they are here with a critical patient and using the family room.
EMS will be assigned a laptop for their documentation. The laptop will be kept at the charge desk and will be for EMS documenting use only. This will give EMS the flexibility to find an unoccupied area to document with needed computer access.
Currently the computer in the EMS room is set up with a generic login for EMS and is being left logged in with patient information available for viewing by whoever uses that computer. This is a privacy issue.
The laptop will be setup with the same generic login that EMS is currently using but will be secure.

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.
