Bloodborne Pathogens: The Infectious Disease program is designed to assist fire and emergency medical personnel in how to handle bio-hazardous pathogens. As an instructor, you will learn to deliver subject matter to include identifying how significant is the exposure, what actions to take, confidentiality, counseling, testing, treatment and prophylaxis, family issues, employment issues, pharmacology, decontamination, laundry and waste management.
Patient Handling: Every day we are called to scenes involving patient movement from simply putting a patient back in bed, to some of the most complex calls which challenge even the most experienced EMS provider. We have a variety of patient-moving devices available to transfer patients from point A to point B, safely. Why do we continue to drop patients? This program is intended to make patient care providers more aware of the issues surrounding patient transfer and preventing patients from being dropped.
