EMS on AIR

In this episode, we welcome Dave Roth, DrPH, BSN, RN and Samantha DeMont, BSN RN.  Dave is the Oakland County Public Health Nursing Supervisor as well as the Health Division Safe Sleep Coordinator and the Coordinator for the Fetal and Infant Mortality Review, or FIMR.  Samantha is an Oakland County Public Health Nurse and FIMR Parent Interviewer.  Dave and Samantha have tough jobs, as they are all too familiar with infant mortality and preventable infant sleep related deaths.  Part of their job is to know the incidence, occurrences and circumstances of infant deaths in Oakland County, Michigan.  They are most familiar with our local data, so it makes sense to bring them into the fold to help guide us towards understanding the problem in our back yard.  Understanding the problem and appreciating what we can do to solve it is vitally important. 

Today, Dave and Sam lend their expertise and data help us appreciate what is at stake for newborns sleeping in unsafe situations.  Then, they describe what Oakland County Health is doing to limit preventable infant deaths in Oakland County, Michigan.  We finish off our discussion by describing how Oakland County Health is helping to implement DOSE into as many EMS agencies and systems, as possible.
