Purpose

We have an anonymous reporting system for EMS personnel to report close-calls and medical or treatment challenges. This system was created to identify safety trends and challenges in the EMS care of children; and to create a spotlight series for in-time educational opportunities and protocol updates

Methods

Any EMS professional can call 855 543-9367 (KIDZ-EMS) to report a safety event and/or a medical or treatment challenge that occurred on a call involving a child. We ask callers to provide:

  • Patient's age,
  • Description of the case, including any challenges or safety issues,
  • Call setting, and
  • Suggestions for future occurrences or prevention.

We ask that callers please not share identifying information such as: names of people, agencies, locations, and dates.
