San Francisco Fire Fighters Local 798 is giving the benefit of EMS Guardian to all of its members.
Your EMS job is stressful enough.
As a licensed professional, yourjob is an emergency and you have to be at your best- people's lives depend on it. But being a first responder, there can be a lot of fingers pointing at you if something-anything-goes wrong. With every response, you face the possibility of having a complaint filed against you by nurses, doctors, co-workers, patients or their families.
EMS Guardian is your first responder for Career Emergencies.
How can you be at your best if you are worried about petty complaints? To take some of the pressure off, you need to know that even if a complaint is made-someone has your back. If you were not aware, complaints are made every day. Off-duty mistakes are reported to the EMS Authority. The result is an investigation by the EMS Authority which can lead to your license being disciplined or even revoked. The EMS Authority investigates over 400 complaints per year for issues like DUIs, prior convictions, gross negligence allegations, medication errors, transport issues, errors in judgment, misdemeanor convictions and dependency issues.
Here is the outcome of EMSA’s Investigations:
