Midstate Excellence in EMS Quality and Safety – ONEIDA FIRE DEPT
The excellence in quality and safety is awarded to a person or Agency that dedicates itself to “setting the bar high” and we are recognizing an Agency that has embraced the terms Quality and Safety.
Not just on the “big” call, everyday day in and day out the Department reviews, critiques and adapts to improve response and care to the citizens and surrounding area. Not stopping there the Department is an active participant in the county and regional quality assurance programs as well.
While we are recognizing an agency the application includes and acknowledges this is not a single entity and it is thanks to the support of the membership, administration and municipal leaders that have made this a successful program.
During 2014 the Agency moved from the Critical Care level of service to a Paramedic service and has added both the ability to send 12 lead ECG’s improving patient outcomes and moved to Electronic Charting allowing instant accurate data collection to help improve the service they provide
