"To coordinate quality pre-hospital care in a patient centered system through education, cooperation, and commitment”
PLEASE note the updated protocol for STEMIs within VAD #6
A MCI Drill was held in Waitsfield in early April. Local Fire departments quickly made the scene safe and EMS services MRVAS, Waterbury and Northfield participated.
Requested - If possible, call from the field to advise ED that you sent an EKG strip from the field and they will look for it. See protocol: listed below in Recent downloads.
Aug 1st is now our go live date for High Performance CPR in the district. That means everyone must be trained by then. We are pretty close. I would love two more possible training sessions before then to see if we can get everyone trained. This will be the last change to be trained.
The two dates will be June15th and July TBD.
AGAIN, THIS MEANS EVERYONE MUST BE TRAINED ON HIGH PERFORMANCE CPR BY AUG 1.
VAD6 has trained over 201 people in high-performance CPR in the past year. All of them have been entered into CentreLearn, if their account is active.
Head of Service for each agency compare their current roster with the completed list below. If there are members that have obtained HPCPR through another means, please provide me their names so I can take them off of the list. Otherwise, each HOS is requested to provide a list of current D6 responders that have not attended HPCPR. This list needs to be given to Jared and myself by May 1st so we can plan the completion of our training.
Using the D6 list from Vermont EMS, we still have 113 people that have not attended. Contact your service training officer or Scott Bagg if you need HPCPR training
Completed a unified PCS for interfacility transports. See PCS_Orders_D6_2019, (link below)
The emergency department at CVMC will be starting construction May 14th on the B-side and the docs room/AB nurses station. This phase will last approx. ten weeks and will be followed by another that will involve the c-side.
There will always be a minimum five foot path for ambulance traffic to get from the bay to C-side. The TCA will be accessed by traveling down the A-side and through the kitchen. Please excuse our mess for this time period and as there are many questions we don’t know ourselves, understand that things may move around.
For now linen should be accessed from the cart at the end of the C-side. We do not have wall space to keep the B-side linen cart because a temporary wall will be around the B-side, docs station and half way down the A-side. Lab stuff will be in a cabinet in the same location (by the c-side linen cart).
Please reach out to Jes Cullen or Keith Taylor for questions.
The NREMT AEMT psychomotor exam will now accept any supraglottic airway. This means that iGel airways can now be used for testing, along with King LTDs, Combitubes, and LMAs.
This is effective June 1st, 2019.
Email Scott Bagg if you have any questions. Scott.Bagg@cvmc.org
A VAD3 purchasing policy needed to be adopted. The warning to change the bylaws was made and will be voted on at the June 11,2019 Meeting. Copy below.
