Overview

The call is not complete until the paperwork is done. Many EMTs and paramedics would welcome assistance in how to prepare and give oral and written reports clearly and concisely. This book is designed to do just that. The oral report needs knowledgeable and effective delivery. The written report also needs completeness and accuracy. It is a permanent patient medical record. It may be referred to in the hospital by medical care providers, utilized by quality assurance programs, and is a legal document admissible in a court of law. The call documentation is the starting point for any questions or investigations concerning the care given by EMTs and paramedics. It is their first line of defense. This book breaks down the components of report giving and writing and provides the reader a useful reporting system to fit just about any written documentation or verbal reporting situation. It also contains helpful chapters on special reporting situations commonly encountered by EMS personnel, and sample reports useful either for discussion groups or individual analysis. Common, proper medical abbreviations and charting symbols drawn from authoritative texts are also provided. The result is a text useful to both new and veteran EMTs and paramedics.
