Protecting, Improving and Preventing Errors in EMS

October 28, 2014    |   By: Calevir

That was the message shared with EMS professionals at ESO Solutions WAVE 2014 Conference in Austin, Texas. EMS leaders learned about protecting an organization’s safety and quality work as well as how they can safely learn from each other to prevent future events from occurring. The presentation, PSO 101, explains the Patient Safety Quality Improvement Act (PSQIA) for EMS professionals.
