Posted on in Policy Updates

Below is the 30-day public comment draft version of the CVEMSA Hospital Bypass policy 7008.

This policy replaces the published Trauma Bypass policy 7008. The new policy includes the content of the current 7008 but adds STEMI and Stroke bypass criteria as well. The policy also includes the criteria for closing an ED to incoming ambulance traffic in the event of a physical plant failure.

Changes to communication terminology are incorporated into the policy. Currently system partners are advised when an ED cannot receive suspected stroke patients due to CT scan unavailability by a “CT Scan Down” system notification. This notification will change to a specific “Stroke Bypass” advisory. STEMI Center unavailability is also clarified as “STEMI Bypass” within the policy.

Because the policy replaces rather than modifies the current Trauma Bypass 7007, The existing 7007 is included for reference.
