Lessons Learned from the Pierce County CQI Committee Case Reviews

March, 2017 CQI

  • Importance of "Closed Loop" communications during EMS care to be certain the message and plan of action is clear.

  • Utilization of vital signs parameters and ALS assessment are important aspects of patient care. Don't treat the monitor only, if in doubt pull the ET tube out and reinsert.
