The revision of Policy 7008 includes changes in the policy required due to Coastal Valleys’ change of hospital notification systems from EMResource to ImageTrend Resource Bridge. The process included within the policy represents current practices for EMS Agency approval of hospital bypass based on hospital ability to provide specialty care services, or when impacted by physical plant disruption. This version clarifies procedures and incorporates the ImageTrend Resource Bridge.

 

Below is the final policy revision to CVEMSA Administrative Policy 6001, Completion of Patient Care Records.

Policy 6001: Completion of Patient Care Records

This revision provides clarity for Basic Life Support (BLS) providers’ documentation requirements. Other changes include an inclusion of a patient definition, and a requirement for transport providers to deliver any provided first responder PCR to receiving facilities when turning over care. This policy is effective August 1st, 2016. Please distribute within your organization and wider stakeholder groups as appropriate.

CVEMSA thanks the agencies and individuals participating in the policy revision process for working with the EMS Agency to improve our system.
