Welcome to the Morris Hospital EMS System's website for
EMS professionals. Here you will find EMS treatment protocols, updates,
training, an event calender, forms and other information relevant to regional
EMS and disaster preparedness. Morris Hospital currently has 16 agencies
working within our system and provides primary and continuing medical
education, administrative support and quality assurance.
in January 2016 there will be a year long Disease & Diagnosis
Calendar posed in the EMS Room at the Hospital. Every Monday we will
provide you with a Disease and there will be a form for you to fill out
and turn back in pertaining to the disease of the week. For Every
Disease that you complete you will be given 1 CE hour. The Form must be
turned back into us within that week in order for it to count. You can
either turn your form back into the EMS room or you can email or fax it
to either Maggi Thomas or Stephanie Brewer.**
Well hello everyone and thanks for taking the time to visit our
website. We appreciate your interest and if you need any further
assistance, please contact any of our EMS staff via email or phone.
The paramedic class is chugging right along - currently in the
middle of their Cardiology module which is to be followed by modules on Medical
Emergencies, Special Patient Populations, Trauma, and finally Operations.
We are proud of their progress and thank our hospital departments and agencies
that provide invaluable clinical experience.
We have been working hard on the finishing touches to the 2016 SMO
update (standing medical orders). I think you will be very happy with the
final product which will be rolled out in the Spring. A few highlights I
wanted to mention: the addition of IV Zofran and Fentanyl, Duonebs
(combination of Albuterol and Atrovent nebs), IN route for Versed, as well as
Ketamine for medication assisted intubation and "behavioral
emergencies". We will be providing education and distributing new
handbooks to our agencies once they are done at the print shop.
Thanks for all you do.
Be careful out there,
