February 12, 2015 - EMS Agency Issues Policy Memorandum on Transfer of Care in the Emergency Department

The San Joaquin County EMS Agency issued EMS Policy Memorandum No. 2015-01, Transfer of Care in the Emergency Department. The purpose of this policy memorandum is to provide direction to receiving hospitals and ambulance providers on the transfer of patient care between prehospital personnel and emergency department staff.  Ambulance Patient Offload Delays (APOD) at receiving hospitals have caused extensive wait times for arriving ambulance patients, while also negatively impacting the availability of ambulances for emergency responses occurring throughout San Joaquin County. It is incumbent on receiving hospitals and ambulance providers to minimize the time required to transfer patient care and return ambulances to service. EMS Policy Memorandum No. 2015-01 may be viewed on the policies page. Prehospital providers should direct questions to Adam Dampier, EMT-P, Prehospital Care Coordinator. Receiving hospitals should direct questions to Jamie Nielsen, RN, EMS Trauma Coordinator.
