EMS Policy No. 4411 Authorization to Conduct Neonatal Transport, is a new policy that establishes a process for authorizing ambulance and air ambulance services to provide specialty care interfacility transport for neonatal patients. Updates to EMS Policy No. 4709 Trauma Center Service Areas, establish new criteria to identify pediatric major trauma patients and destinations for pediatric trauma patients and burn patients.  EMS Policy No. 4985 Transfer of Patient Care in the Emergency Department, will replace Policy Memorandum No. 2015-01 and establish a process for the transfer of patient care in the emergency department that provides for patient safety, while reducing the likelihood of ambulance patient offload delays and the occurrence of ambulance clusters.  Updates to EMS Policy No. 5210 Major Trauma Triage Criteria and EMS Policy No. 5215 Trauma Patient Destination incorporate many of the changes in Policy Memorandum No. 2017-02 designed to decrease the number of incorrectly triaged trauma patients in the San Joaquin County EMS system.  EMS Policy No. 6341 Ambulance Patient Offload Time Data establishes standardized methodologies for collecting, calculating and reporting Ambulance Patient Offload Time (APOT).
