Designed to shine a light on one of the most frequently overlooked skills in a first responders toolbox, the critical ability to write a strong, accurate and detailed EMS report. If You Didn't Write It Down, It Never Happened, is a deep dive into EMS documentation. This book details the essential need for both the paramedic and the EMT to gather the necessary information that is going to be required to produce this vital piece of legal documentation. Different approaches to style and format are looked at, as well as examples for each are included in this book. Also covered is a section addressing many of the medical and trauma calls you might respond to along with a list of details and questions you may want to consider documenting somewhere in your report. In addition, you will learn who the various professionals are that will be reading your report once it's been submitted. From the ER physician who you'll turn your patient over to, to the QI officer who is looking to improve and develop protocols and standards, all the way to your billing department, who are looking to get the skills and service you provided reimbursed. You will learn what specific information each will be looking for and exactly how your patient care report will benefit not only your patient, but also you the provider and your profession as a whole. After reading this book, you will never again take your EMS documentation for granted.
