'What EMS Never Sees'

On November 16 Research Medical Center hosted ‘What EMS Never Sees.’ The event was designed to give EMS providers a rare opportunity to understand the continuum of care a patient receives once they’re brought to the emergency room. EMS providers had the opportunity to visit operating room suites, interventional radiology, cath lab, intensive care unit and rehabilitation. The rotations with three patient scenarios (trauma, stroke and stemi) were designed by Tina York, an EMS professional and current EMS relations director at HCA Midwest Health System. Participants received 4.5 hours CEU certified by the Kansas City Fire Department.
