Mar 05, 2021 Season 2 Episode 28
EMS on AIR

This episode is the fourth in a four-part series focusing on EMS patient care reports, or PCRs.  This series has been developed in collaboration with the Oakland County Medical Control Authority (OCMCA) and various EMS providers as a way of providing information and guidance to EMS agencies and personnel.  Although we reference the OCMCA and our local and State EMS protocols, this series is beneficial to all EMS agencies and providers. 

In this episode, we discuss the value of EMS PCRs.  Primarily, our goal is to increase EMS’ appreciation and awareness of the value and relevance of EMS patient care documentation, as well as how to implement best practices into their work.  To accomplish the goal, our guests help us list and describe the use of various EMS narrative writing methods including SOAP, CHART, the chronological method and DRATT.  Then, we’ll list and describe the minimum information that should be included in the ePCR narrative of every EMS transport of a patient, as well as the additional information required for an EMS transport of patients with time sensitive emergencies.  Finally, we’ll list and describe the minimum information that should be included in the ePCR narrative of every patient care refusal, as well as what must be included in the ePCR narrative of every EMS patient pronounced on scene.
