Safe Pediatric Transport

SS for Safe Pediatric TransportTransporting kiddos in the ambulance – really, how hard can it be?  Just have mom hold the little one as you bounce down the road and… CRASH!!!  Mothers are strong people, but even they can’t prevent their baby from flying out of their arms.

When we’re entrusted to take care of our patients and non-patient riders, there are no shortcuts.  We must assure their safety.  The Safe Pediatric Transport CE examines several elements of infant and child transport, the federal recommendations that apply to ambulances, and the different ways we can transport these young patients without causing harm.

This education is a mix of a pdf and an online video that offers half an hour of continuing education credit.  If you’re looking for a boring, totally-serious CE, it’s not here.  Action shots provided by our backwoods Senior Field Training Officer Donnie and his sidekick Field Training Officer, Les.
