Regional Meeting

Using 9-1-1 for Trauma and STEMI Re-triage

June 10, 2024 | 2:30 - 3:30PM PT

HASC, in collaboration with the LA County Emergency Services (EMS) Agency, invites you to a webinar on emergency department (ED) usage of 9-1-1 for trauma and ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) re-triage.

This initiative stems from our ongoing efforts to enhance emergency response effectiveness across LA County. In response to Prehospital Reference Nos. 506.2 (9-1-1 Trauma Re-triage) and 513.1 (Interfacility Transport of Patients with ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction), the EMS Agency has created two detailed checklists. These tools are designed to help your team quickly select the best means of transporting patients meeting specific criteria and ensure they are fully prepared for transport upon EMS arrival.

During the webinar, EMS Agency staff will provide an overview of the checklists and address any questions your team may have. This session is an excellent opportunity for ED personnel to learn ways to optimize EMS usage to benefit patients.

If you plan to attend the webinar, please review the attached worksheets ahead of time. We strongly encourage all ED directors and relevant staff to join this crucial discussion to further our shared goal of improving patient care and emergency response.

For any questions, please contact Nida Mohsin, (213) 538- 0703 or [email protected]. Thank you for your continued commitment to excellence in emergency medical services.
