The Monroe-Livingston Region is pleased to release our educational program on “Effective Patient Handoffs”. This new initiative and change in culture engages the region’s EMS providers and our emergency department physician and nursing colleagues. With support from the region’s emergency department directors, it provides a common structure to communicate patient care information from EMS to hospital providers. The initiative outlines a simple nine item report that should be utilized for medical control phone calls, cellular prehospital notification and in hospital patient handoffs.
Supporting tools are availible for download for both hospital and EMS providers!
