EMT Refresher: Crime, Coroners, and Cops Oh My!

On the gritty streets of Fort Worth, Texas an EMT will get a call that runs her/him right into a crime scene or DOA. There are going to be decisions that your going to have to make at that very moment. How should an EMT respond at a crime scene. What should a Paramedic report to the local Law Enforcement Officers?

The next three EMT refresher notes as the question:

Identify situations in which law enforcement or the medical examiner/coroners office should be contacted.

Discuss special considerations in responding to potential crime scenes.

Describe situations in which the EMT may be mandated to make a report, such as suspected abuse, crimes, and infectious disease.
