Texas paramedic looks back on 41 years in EMS - EMS1.com

Monday, June 19, 2017

The school still offers an Associate’s Degree in Emergency Medical Services Professions. I stayed there until I retired in 2004 and moved to Tucson (Arizona)."Gandy says law school and his 25 years as an attorney taught him much more than the law. "You learn to think critically; how to gather and cull facts, then decide what’s important and what isn’t."One thing that seems to be a problem for EMS people is the difference between a fact and a conclusion. When you read most patient-care reports, they’re filled with unsupportable conclusions. For example, ‘Patient is A&Ox4.’ Well, that means they’re awake and alert to time, place, person and event, but how did you determine that? Lots of times, that awake-and-alert stuff is a conclusion with no basis. A good lawyer would rip that to shreds."What EMS providers think they know about the lawEMS workers often misunderstand legalities, according to Gandy. He cites the law of consent and refusal as an example."We don’t have to worry too much about consent," he says, "because we can treat almost anyone under implied consent if we have to. Where we run into problems is when we either want to refuse a patient or the patient wants to refuse care against our advice."A refusal has some technical parts to it that are seldom taught to EMS students. You have to prove informed refusal, but before you get to that point, you have to prove your patient has the present mental capacity to understand the nature of his condition and the nature of refusal, and has enough mental acuity to make a rational judgment."Gandy says most EMS providers don’t know how to determine whether a patient has present mental capacity. Instead, they focus on mental competence – a legal concept rather than a medical one."Everyone is mentally competent unless they’re declared otherwise by a court. Even if you’re drunk, you may have lost present mental capacity, but that doesn’t mean you’re mentally incompetent. Failure to understand that difference can lead to poor documentation. I’ve seen very few written refusals that would stand up in court."Not the retiring typeGandy wasn’t finished with EMS when he retired from Tyler Junior College in 2004. "I got a call from an instructor I’d hired at Tyler," he says. "She was managing a rural EMS service in West Texas and asked if I’d like to come work for her. I ended up riding for Shackelford County EMS until 2007."Then I went back to Tucson with every intent of sitting by my pool and drinking martinis, but I got a call from a guy at Cochise College (about 80 miles southeast of Tucson). I ended up going down there and teaching for two years in their paramedic program."Today, Gandy works for Percom, an online provider of EMS courses. At 79, he still sees retirement as something others pursue, but he does make time for two of his non-EMS passions. "I’m hooked on mystery novels," he says, "and I’m determined to find the best chile rellenos in southern Arizona."About the authorMike Rubin is a paramedic in Nashville, Tennessee. A former faculty member at Stony Brook University, Mike has logged 24 years in EMS after 18 in the corporate world as an engineer, manager and consultant. He created the EMS version of Trivial Pursuit and produced Down Time, a collection of rescue-oriented rock and pop tunes. Contact him at mgr22@prodigy.net. Recommended for youJoin the discussion
