Emergency Transport Sample Pack

Posted by Graham Medical on Jun 30, 2020 2:30:00 PM

It seems that even within our own national borders we are truly living in perilous times. From the effects of natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, fires and earthquakes, to domestic violence,  mass shootings, a global pandemic, civil unrest and rioting, it would seem that danger is all around us in differing forms. Thankfully, there are people like you and your staff who are dedicated, trained and equipped to intervene and protect the rest of us from these perils - the police, firefighters and emergency medical service personnel. 

We recognize that the dedication and training are already in place so we at Graham Medical would like to make sure that our heroes are also properly equipped as well. We want to assure that you, and they, have the proper equipment available to effectively and efficiently transport people out of harm’s way to a place of safety for assessment and treatment.

Choosing the Right Patient Transport Unit for the Specific Emergency Task

Posted by Graham Medical on May 26, 2020 9:00:00 AM

Compared to other US occupations, paramedics and EMTs have an injury rate that the NCBI states is three times above the national average. Even under normal circumstances, emergency personnel are under a great deal of stress, both physically and mentally. 

But the times we find ourselves in are anything but normal. 

An extraordinary event like the COVID-19 pandemic places additional stress on EMTs, while stretching budgets and safety protocols thin. Due to this pressure, it’s more important than ever to ensure that emergency teams have access to transport solutions that can maintain — and exceed — the current safety measures under extreme circumstances.

Tackling Casualty Evacuation During Disaster Response

Posted by Graham Medical on Feb 25, 2020 10:00:00 AM

First responders often contend with unusual stressors when tackling casualty evacuation during disaster response — like reaching (and later moving) victims from hot zones or hard-to-reach places. Their response time has a significant impact on survival rates. As such, equipping them with the training and tools they need to work efficiently and safely can mean the difference between a patient’s life and death. 

With an increase in mass casualty incidents in recent years, first response teams are under more pressure than ever before to be disaster prepared. Whether it’s an active shooter incident or natural disaster, your casualty evacuation plan needs to be reviewed and updated regularly to ensure that your EMS team members are able to respond to disaster, and evacuate victims, efficiently and safely. 

Here are five things to keep in mind when reviewing the casualty evacuation aspect of your disaster response plan:

Understanding START and SALT For Multiple Casualty Incidents

Posted by Graham Medical on Jul 9, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Mass casualties require mass coordination by first responders. One of the most vital areas of this coordination in the treatment of victims is triage. Fortunately, experienced triage experts have been working to improve specialized response protocols to ensure that treatment is prioritized by those who need life-saving care first, while also improving the transportation times and safety of all involved. It is important that first responders stay up to date on the latest triage tactics for active shooter and mass casualty incidents. These tactics are designed to increase efficiency and determine the people who need help the most.

Why Police Need Better Equipment For Tactical Response

Posted by Graham Medical on Jun 18, 2019 10:00:00 AM

Police are under significant pressure with the rise of mass casualty and active shooter incidents. Combatting an increase in both violence and public visibility, these first responders are expected to quickly secure a scene with minimal harm to bystanders. This response is expected to happen on an extremely quick timetable. In situations such as active shooters, police must move beyond neighborhood peace-keeping to act as tactical responders and disaster experts.

EMS Patient Transport Protocol: Patients Who Decline Transport

Posted by Graham Medical on Mar 12, 2018 11:00:00 AM

As an emergency care provider, you will occasionally find patients who refuse transport.  A Utah study showed that 5.1% of patients refused transportation against direct medical advice of EMS. A common reason to refuse transport is concerns about cost. Many patients also may feel that their injury is not severe enough to warrant an ambulance ride.
