Preparing Yourself For A Long Hospital Stay

Welcome to my site about tactics you can use to cope with hospitalization. I am Edward Collins. I created this site after a long hospitalization left me feeling uncomfortable and dying to go home. I was ill-prepared for the lengthy stay at that facility. Despite my nurses and doctors’ best efforts, I felt lonely, bored and somewhat isolated during my stay. On this site, I will help you prepare for hospitalization well before you need your next medical procedure. Please come by my site daily to learn the information you need to know. Thank you for visiting my website about preparing for hospitalization.

What EMS Management Can Do That Dispatchers Cannot

Health & Medical Blog

Emergency dispatchers are responsible for the alerts and dispersal of basic emergency responders. The dispatchers deliver an important service via a stressful and difficult job. However, not everything that is needed at an accident site or an emergency site can be sent by dispatch. That is where EMS management services comes in. Here is a little more about what this software, program, and emergency medical system delivers.

Helicopters/Air Lifts

When dealing with accidents or cases of severe trauma, most emergency medical teams and first responders are unaware of the severity of the medical problems prior to arriving on the scene. As such, critical minutes are wasted while the team awaits helicopters and air lifts for support. An EMS management system puts the medical helicopter in the air at the same time the ambulance is dispatched. The helicopter travels with the ambulance until it is determined that the accident is not so severe, or that traffic will not cause significant delays in saving a person's life.

Satellite Surveillance of Road Conditions, Including Traffic

In major metropolitan areas, the worst accidents are almost always those in rush-hour traffic. The dangers of trying to get to injured parties quickly without getting injured are very real. These dangers are compacted by bad road conditions and bottle-necked traffic behind or ahead of the accident scene. Since dispatchers and ambulances cannot see ahead or know road conditions without being on them all day and night, you need the EMS system to tell you this ahead of time. Real time satellite surveillance of road conditions and traffic is part of the system's intelligent features, and a life-saver for both the victims and the EMTs, police, and fire rescue personnel.

Emergency Help Via the Seas

Land dispatchers do not have the power to initiate help for victims on boats, yachts or ocean liners. Special EMS management systems and software address this issue by providing reports on waves and ocean storms and by reaching out to the nearest coast guards, dock fire and rescue teams and any other emergency personnel within the vicinity of the stranded, injured or endangered. If your hospital is in a coastal town, or located near a very large body of water, you may want to engage these features of the system and its software to help those on the waters. Having the ability to deploy land, sea, and air craft for emergencies can really make a difference in the number of lives your hospital saves.
