Buck Feris discusses paramedic field determination of death in a short audio recording (5 minutes). Paramedics need to remember that less is more when writing documentation of death in the patient care report. Buck has observed too many instances where inappropriate or excessive information is gathered that often times disturbs a potential crime scene.
Buck is a Paramedic and EMS educator in Louisville, Kentucky. He is also a co-host of the EMSEduCast and creator/producer of Copy Code Three – a new podcast where ordinary people tell stories about their extra ordinary lives.
