Shelby Cox, NREMT-P

As a Nationally Registered Paramedic with more than 20 years invested in emergency medical services, Shelby Cox has had experience in many aspects of the business including ground ambulance transport, air medical services, hospital liaison for EMS, EMS Educator, and Hospital Outreach Management. Her passion for helping people in need started when she was very young, and she has always been a natural helper looking to make a difference. Shelby found her niche to make a difference in healthcare as a mentor and leader in emergency medical services and that has always inspired her mission to inform colleagues about the recognition of human error and how to improve patient outcomes throughout the years. Shelby is happy to say that this amazing journey has led her to her current position as the Patient Safety Coordinator with the Center for Patient Safety where she can apply her knowledge to educate healthcare providers on a larger scale.
