Working in emergency medicine is always a challenge, but when you work solo it can make you feel like a lone wolf. In reality, there is always help somewhere. New grad and EMPA Aaron Inouye is in a relatively unique scenario. Not only does he work in the challenging environment of a single-coverage EM provider, he does so as a new graduate. Listen to this interview no matter your career as you may find some fascinating pearls you were not expecting.
We are joined by a specialist in child abuse and neglect, Tom Balga, who is a fellow EMPA. Child abuse and neglect is not a fun subject, but it is very important as we can truly change lives. In this blog and podcast we cover some of the essentials that can be easily carried over to your next shift.
Podcast #73 - PPE in Opiate Overdoses
We hear plenty on the news about the opioid crisis, but we are hearing more and more about exposure to these opiates potentially harming first responders and even those in the emergency department. It begs the question, how much is enough in regards to personal protective equipment (PPE)?
Risk management expert Kevin Klauer joins us today with some rapid fire documentation pearls. We had a similar discussion focused on the MDM when we had Mike Weinstock on back in September. Hopefully, we will have both experts (and others) back again in the future but this was a great talk focusing on some key pearls that we can all bring on the next shift.
