On Episode 79 of the EMSEduCast – the podcast by and for EMS educators – we discussed a near miss and incident reporting with Gary Wingrove. Listen to the show and read the show notes.
During the show we discussed things that should never happen in the ambulance – the “never evers.”
This is my list of “never evers.”
1. The patient should never ever self-eject from a moving ambulance.
2. The patient should never ever be dropped (I have had second thoughts about my protests to this during the show).
3. The patient should never ever have a mis-placed airway insertion that is not identified and corrected.
What would you put on your “never ever” list?
