How do you measure quality in your EMS system? You have a set of standardized quality measures that are used nationally. The National EMS Quality Alliance (NEMSQA) is currently conducting a Call for Concepts for quality measures. These concepts will be evaluated by a panel of EMS subject matter experts for possible development into a new quality measure.

A good quality measure is one that measures something essential for quality as opposed to just something that is nice to know. Some examples of areas to address through quality measures are: Clinical treatment, Call take and dispatch (EMD), Safety, and Response times.

Everyone is encourage to consider submitting one or more concepts as the more concepts that are received this only helped in the development of useful measures. You can submit your concepts at this link: https://www.nemsqa.org/measure-development-process/. The deadline for submission is August 20, 2020 but you are encouraged to submit your concepts soon.

The National EMS Quality Alliance (NEMSQA), in collaboration with Florida Department of Health Division of Emergency Preparedness and Community Support, invites members of the EMS Community and the public to submit concepts for consideration in the Feasible, Actionable, Impactful, Relevant (F.A.I.R....

Are you interested in learning more about how your work in EMS impacts patient outcomes?
Do you ever wonder how well you perform a specific clinical process?
Do you have ideas on how EMS can improve processes and care?

If so, we have the opportunity for you! The National EMS Quality Alliance (NEMSQA), in collaboration with Florida Department of Health Division of Emergency Preparedness and Community Support invites members of the EMS Community and the public to submit ideas for consideration for use in the Feasible, Actionable, Impactful, Relevant (F.A.I.R.) EMS Measurement Project.

This project, funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) intends to develop quality measures to be used in the EMS Community.

Quality measures are tools that help us see how we are doing in different aspects of care like processes (things we do), outcomes (what happens to patients), patient perceptions (how patients feel about their care), and structures (resources available). Measuring quality is important so providers, patients, and agencies can determine what actions are needed to improve patient care.

While all measure concepts will be considered, preference may be given to those focusing on rural health outcomes and the State Health Department's strategic objectives, such as: infant mortality, cardiovascular health, trauma systems improvement.

Click the link http://www.nemsqa.org/measure-development-process/ to submit an idea for a measure for this project. All ideas are welcome! The deadline to submit measure concepts is August 20, 2020.

It's still safe to perform CPR during the pandemic

You should perform CPR if you see someone having a cardiac episode, despite fears of spreading the novel coronavirus. You're far more likely to save someone's life than to contract Covid-19 and die yourself, according to a new study.

NATIONAL EMS ORGANIZATIONS JOIN FORCES TO RAISE FUNDS TO HONOR THE EMS VICTIMS OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC THROUGH SALES OF A COMMEMORATIVE COIN HONORING FRONTLINE WORKERS

FREEHOLD, NJ – A coalition of national EMS organizations announced today a joint fundraising effort for paramedic and EMT victims of the Covid-19 pandemic through the sale of a custom designed memorial coin.

The coin and fundraising efforts, conceived by paramedic Alan Lieberman, goes on sale starting June 1, 2020 through July 15, 2020. All proceeds from sales will be donated to the National EMS Memorial Service, an organization dedicated to honoring those Emergency Medical Service personnel who have died in the line of duty.

“As a veteran EMS service member for the last 22 years working in New York City and the tristate area, it was devastating to see colleagues who save lives become the victims themselves. This coin is a testament to the men and women whom we’ve lost and all those who continue to serve on the front lines.”

When most Americans shelter at home, EMS workers are out trying to save lives. To date, there have been almost 40 known COVID-19 related deaths of EMS professionals.

The coin retails for $30 and will be sold through private Facebook, solely dedicated to memorializing and honoring those EMS providers that have paid the ultimate sacrifice, https://www.facebook.com/Covid19-EMS-Memorial-Challenge-Coin-108113637588261/?modal=admin_todo_tour . The page provides information, education and support to enhance the field and to remember those lost to because of this pandemic.

This is a great idea for EMS services to partner for community safety education at a local lake or river.

We are proud to introduce a project we have been working on for two years is getting close to being complete. The City of Alvarado has partnered with Cook Children's on many programs in the past few years. One of our visions throughout our partnership was to bring an added level of safety for the lake. We will be installing a life jacket loaner station in the next couple of weeks. We would like to thank Cook Children's for the donation of all the supplies!! We hope that you use these life jackets when need and all we ask is you return them when your done.

June 1-7 is National CPR and AED Awareness Week:
Adoption of a form of CPR that does not involve mouth-to-mouth breaths has increased the rate of bystanders performing the lifesaving action on someone in cardiac arrest. Hands-Only CPR, which involves only chest compressions, is an alternative to standard CPR, which involves both chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth rescue breaths.

More than 350,000 cardiac arrests occur outside of hospitals each year in the United States. Immediate CPR can double or triple the chances of survival. Keeping the blood flow active – even partially – extends the opportunity for a successful resuscitation once trained medical staff arrive at the scene.

As EMS Week comes to an end, we would like to recognize the most influential television show dedicated to firefighters and rescue personnel. The 1970s series known as “EMERGENCY!”, not only helped to promote the paramedic profession to the general public, but it was also single-handedly responsible for the recruitment of countless men and women into the fire service. An entire generation of firefighters grew up watching the adventures of “Johnny and Roy,” and many of them credit the television show with motivating them to choose their careers in public safety.

Unless you’ve sat where this paramedic has sat, it’s hard to know what all goes on inside the confined space of an ambulance. It’s because we rarely get to see into this world that is unfamiliar to so many. It is a space often filled with the sound of sadness whether that of sobbing or screaming. It is a space that sees blood and broken bones. A space that feels life slowly fading away but still holds hope. But amongst the pain, a passion, to pursue all avenues to keep those dying, alive. A persistence to maintain a beating heart while treating the broken hearts of the loved ones left behind. It wasn’t for a job, no you don’t join EMS for a job. For those who wear the EMS patch on their sleeve, it’s a commitment to give your all on every call no matter how great or how small. To the PARAMEDICS and EMTs across the world, who serve us all, we will never know all that you see, but this week and always, we hope you hear this - thank you for all that you do. Happy National EMS Week! #emsweek2020 #paramedics #emts #thankyou

The Census Bureau's ongoing surveys assist in measuring the economic impact of pandemics and other emergencies, creating plans for the country's eventual recovery. #NationalEMSWeek recognizes the work that EMS workers provide to communities and without Census data, EMS workers would not have the information needed to respond to emergencies quickly and effectively. Respond today at 2020Census.gov to make sure your community is prepared for any emergency. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKgeweuen4o
I became disabled after contracting a contagious illness as a volunteer EMT. Now that I am the one that is need of help, my life is in danger from the CRIMINAL ABUSE by people paid to help that no one will do a damn thing to stop. By the time I got sick, I had been ostracized by my squad and therefore my town because of my association with people with disabilities (both pro and volunteer). I was actually told my the squad president that people who were different (specifically disabled by autism) were not allowed at the building because other members did not like them......my town has rallied around others who could get by without help, buy won't do a damn thing for me....not even volunteer an hour to help with things I can't physically do for myself. MY LIFE IS IN DANGER. I can only afford to live a couple more months due to the CRIMINAL ABUSE I have been subjected to by people paid with tax dollars to help.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAgglZzgDLA&t=12s Please share my video. I need it to go viral to try to get the attention of someone to stop the CRIMINAL ABUSE against me by people paid to help...specifically a former dating partner who was an administrator with the NJ Division Disability Services/BI Fund who used his state job to engage in criminal abuse against me....and no one will do a damn thing. I spent my life helping others, as a volunteer EMT, I contracted a contagious illness which caused a seizure and TBI.
This can benefit everyone who volunteers, a selfless job now gets recognized! SHARE!
