Re: EMS Equipment at ECMC

Date: September 1, 2016

It is essential for EMS equipment to be retrieved from ECMC as soon as possible. Our staff makes every effort to return EMS equipment to the transporting service before the crew leaves the hospital. When this occurs, crews are expected to take the equipment with them.

Backboards represent the overwhelming majority of equipment in the EMS equipment room. While the number of patients transported on a backboard to ECMC has decreased, the number of backboards in our EMS equipment room is greater than it has ever been.

We value our relationship with the entire EMS community and we are asking for your help. Before leaving the hospital, I ask you to please check with our staff to see if your equipment is available and take it with you. If not, please ensure it is retrieved in a timely manner.

Thank you very much for your cooperation.
