  • Approved in Mi only: This episode is the third in a four-part series focusing on EMS patient care reports, or PCRs. This series has been developed in collaboration with the Oakland County Medical Control Authority (OCMCA) and various EMS providers as a way of providing information and guidance to EMS agencies and personnel. Although we reference the OCMCA and our local and State EMS protocols, this series is beneficial to all EMS agencies and providers. In this episode, we discuss the value of EMS PCRs. Primarily, our goal is to increase EMS’ appreciation and awareness of the value and relevance of EMS patient care documentation, as well as how to implement best practices into their work. To accomplish the goal, our guests help us: List and describe the terminology related to PCR data entry. Then, we list and describe the minimum data elements that must be completed in the PCR of an EMS transport of a patient. From there, we’ll discuss the additional elements required in the PCR of an EMS transport patients with time sensitive emergencies. We round out the discussion by listing and describing the minimum data elements that must be completed in the PCR of an EMS patient care refusal, an EMS patient Dead on Scene and an EMS Termination of Resuscitation in the field.
