COVID EMS SAFETY PRECAUTIONS: With COVID has come a lot of safety precautions for EMS, Fire, Law Enforcement and all who respond to emergencies.
The 911 Centers ask precautionary questions when medical emergencies call 911. However when trauma calls come into the 911 Center, often times the patient is unable to give a history. The medical providers go into the unknown in trauma patients.
It was not until one night when I was driving the ambulance did it really hit me the EMS providers are the ones enclosed in the box with the COVID patients. These men and women are the ones being exposed to COVID when transporting patients to the medical providers.
This is a video, while boring, it explains the precautions EMS and other pre-hospital providers follow when dealing with patients who might be COVID positive or exposed to COVID patients.
