Patient Abandonment: What It Is — and Isn’t

first_imgEMS providers often express concern about the meaning of the term abandonment. In EMS, it can happen in a number of ways. It is important for field providers to know what abandonment is and what it isn t. However, EMTs often think that a paramedic can never turn over care to an intermediate or basic EMT in the prehospital setting, and that simply isn t the case. For example, if a volunteer rescue unit responds to a patient with a sprained ankle, the paramedic on that unit may stay in the district while the basic EMTs transport the patient. This is not abandonment if the paramedic has not initiated any advanced life support care that cannot be monitored by basic EMTs. This transfer of care should be done under your EMS medical director s orders, and with protocols to cover the situation. If in doubt, contact on-line medical control. Abandonment can occur if EMTs drop a patient at the ED without giving a report or otherwise transferring care of the patient to a responsible party. It s always good form to have the nurse or physician who is taking over patient care sign the run form acknowledging the transfer of care. Simply putting the patient on the ED stretcher and walking out does not constitute an appropriate transfer of care. Another area of confusion over the concept of abandonment is when EMS responders face an unsecured scene, or when a scene deteriorates and becomes dangerous for the providers. EMTs are never required to risk their own safety. When responding to a call that involves violence, such as a shooting, stabbing or domestic violence situation, be sure that law enforcement also responds. If law enforcement is not on scene when you arrive, it s appropriate to stage close by the scene to await them. This is not patient abandonment. Should EMTs be on a scene caring for a patient, and suddenly find themselves facing a loaded gun, they should escape by any means possible, even if that means leaving the patient behind. This does not constitute patient abandonment, because the EMTs are faced with a situation that does not allow them to provide continued care. Understanding exactly what constitutes patient abandonment will go a long way toward providing both responsible care and limiting liability.center_img Abandonment is sometimes defined as the unilateral termination of the provider/patient relationship at a time when continuing care is still needed. It is a form of negligence that involves termination of care without the patient s consent. To prove abandonment, a plaintiff must show that a patient needs care that a medical provider has entered into a relationship to provide care to that patient, and then either stops providing care or transfers care to a person of lesser training when the patient needs the higher level of training. Abandonment can also occur when the EMS system as a whole fails to respond to a patient s call for help. This can occur if dispatch refuses to send a unit, or when units from the local service are not available and no mutual aid is sought. Another way that abandonment might occur is if a responding EMS unit comes upon an accident en route to the call, or is diverted to a higher priority call by dispatch. If nothing is done for the initial caller, abandonment may occur. Appropriate use of priority dispatching systems and the development of mutual aid agreements will go a long way towards limiting liability for abandonment. Abandonment may occur in systems that do not have adequate mutual aid agreements, or priority dispatch systems, and instead stack calls in the order they come in, without regard to severity, until an EMS unit becomes available.

Bonk Breaker Fig unwrapped with new Team Bonk Breaker sponsorships

first_imgBonk Breaker, which was recently named the official energy bar for all US Ironman events, has created an energy bar ‘bursting with gooey fig’. Bonk Breaker Fig is designed to help athletes go the distance and fuel anyone in search of a nourishing treat made from all-natural ingredients free from dairy, gluten and soy.Fig is the ninth flavour introduced by Bonk Breaker, which was named ‘Best Nutrition Product’ of 2011 by Road Bike Action magazine. Rich in fibre, figs are naturally fat-free, sodium-free and cholesterol-free. Adding power to Bonk Breaker Fig is chia seed, a ‘superfood’ regarded as one of the richest sources of Omega-3 fatty acids as well as an excellent source of calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, niacin, fibre and antioxidants.“Every Bonk Breaker flavour that we introduce has to be something special and unique,” explained Bonk Breaker founder Jason Winn. “For Bonk Breaker Fig, we’ve incorporated the flavour we all love into a great tasting gluten-free, dairy-free energy bar. Because of the incredible response we received when we launched the Bonk Breaker Apple Pie energy bar last fall, we’ve once again added super food chia seed to our ingredients for Bonk Breaker Fig.”“Fig has been a classic in the endurance sports world for as long as we can remember and even evokes childhood memories,” added Bonk Breaker co-owner Chris Frank. “With that as our inspiration, we spent the last nine months developing Bonk Breaker Fig. It’s a flavour we’ve all been eating since we were kids, and we think we’ve created the perfect balance between great taste and nutrition.”New Team Bonk Breaker sponsorshipsBonk Breaker sponsors professional and amateur athletes, and teams throughout the sporting world. The athletes use Bonk Breaker bars in competition and while training, and provide feedback that helps with new product creation and innovation.Joining the Team Bonk Breaker sponsorship roster are professional triathletes Mac Brown and Lesley Paterson. A four-time USA Triathlon All-American and a two-time Inside Triathlon All-American, Brown finished a career best third at Ironman Wisconsin last year. Competing all over the globe on the British and national Scottish triathlon teams since the age of 14, Paterson left the roads in search of fresh challenges by competing in XTERRA off-road triathlon. She won five races last year on and off the road, but none larger than her victory at the XTERRA World Championships.Paterson said, “Bonk Breaker is the premiere energy bar on the market without a shadow of a doubt. Who would have thought that a totally natural, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free bar could taste so good?”“We’re excited about adding Mac and Lesley to Team Bonk Breaker,” added company co-owner Chris Frank. “They are long-time Bonk Breaker fans and advocates, and both are sensational competitors and wonderful people.”www.bonkbreaker.com Relatedlast_img read more

Foundation helps develop leaders

first_img April 1, 2009 Gabrielle Davis Regular News Foundation helps develop leaders Special to the News Research funded by The Florida Bar Foundation shows that young legal aid attorneys are ready and willing to step up the leadership ladder in their offices, but many feel they haven’t had adequate preparation.The Foundation is working to change that.The Foundation has allocated $100,000 and has collaborated with the Center for Legal Aid Education (CLAE) to create The Florida Leadership Development Institute, a 14-month program that teaches legal aid attorneys the fundamentals in leadership with hands-on support from mentors who are more experienced attorneys and leaders in legal aid.The Foundation-funded 2007 study on recruitment and retention in legal aid demonstrates young legal aid attorneys are “underutilized and are leaving legal aid in two or three years,” said Paul Doyle, director of the Foundation’s Legal Assistance for the Poor and Law Student Assistance grant programs.“The Leadership Development Institute is directed toward enabling young, promising advocates to be a force for leadership in the programs where they are now,” Doyle said.Through the program, Leadership Development Institute fellows and mentors develop a comprehensive set of skills essential to the exercise of leadership in a social justice context. The combination of in-person retreats and Web-based activities provides continuity and ongoing support to Leadership Institute fellows and mentors as they apply new concepts and skills to actual legal aid work and challenges.The Florida community’s 30 institute fellows and mentors are already working together to identify their leadership characteristics and apply different problem-solving techniques in their various legal aid offices.CLAE graduated a class of legal aid attorneys in an institute in New England in 2007. There is another institute in New England running concurrently with Florida’s institute.“We’re hoping to expand to the other states and create a network of emerging leaders and mentors that will have a common language and a common vision for legal services in the future,” said Zenobia Lai, senior training director with CLAE.Over the course of the program, the institute fellows will also work with their mentors and institute faculty on projects proposed by the fellows based on problems they’ve identified in their legal aid communities.The last week in February, the fellows and mentors met for the first time in Orlando.One attorney is working to get financial support for domestic violence victims so that they are able to remain independent outside their former abusive households.“When they get their injunctions to have their safety ensured, they can have the money to stay out of the relationship and hopefully end the cycle of violence,” said Kim Banister, of Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida in Daytona Beach.Another attorney is working on ways to address systemic changes to recurring problems identified through the implementation of a landlord-tenant legal hotline.Ilenia Sanchez-Bryson of Legal Services of Greater Miami, who was tasked by her agency with developing the hotline, said when she set out to build what she thought people needed, she found a recurring set of problems the clients faced that fell outside the realm of legal advice the hotline was set up to provide.“The problems are much bigger than me or my agency,” Sanchez-Bryson said.“This is a great opportunity for me to know who the powers are and to figure out who to bring together and make things happen.”And Lissette Labrousse is researching better ways for low-income Haitians to have full access to legal services.In looking over the fellows’ project ideas, many of them have what it takes to be in leadership, said Dick Bauer, CLAE senior equal justice training fellow.“The institute will teach them how to use those skills to get results,” he said.The institute will convene again in Orlando in May and September and will conclude in January 2010.

SportsLogos.Net 1,182 Discrim Members Share on other sites wurldwyde Share on other sites Link to post Share on other sites First off, here’s a little background about the logo and uniforms I did for the Golden Xtreme last season.http://boards.sportslogos.net/index.php?sh…=20985&hl=kijhlEarlier today, I found out that the team had been sold, and were going to undergo yet another name change for next season. Seeing as Bobby Hull (yes, that Bobby Hull) is part of the new ownership group, the team is being appropriately the Golden Jets (no doubt at Bobby’s request). After contacting the team president this afternoon, I found out that the team plans to go with a red/blue/white color scheme (vintage Winnipeg Jets design), and have already got a logo in place. Needless to say, I was a little disappointed that my hard work got discontinued so quickly, especially after the 3 months of back-and-forth concepts I sent, and the positive response the uniforms got from the town and the league. I just wish the previous owners had passed my info along, so that I could have come up with a new design for them.The good news is, I may still be able to maintain a working relationship with the team, since they will likely need a new website, and possibly some print media for programs and advertisements.So now that the Golden Xtreme have been laid to rest, I can take solace in the fact that one of my designs made it onto an actual team.
