Shelby Cox, NREMT-P

As a Nationally Registered Paramedic with more than 20 years invested in emergency medical services, I am proud to say I have experience in many aspects of the business including ground ambulance transport, air medical services, hospital Liaison for EMS, EMS Educator, and HospitalOutreach Management. My passion for helping people in need started when I was very young, and I have always been a natural helper looking to make a difference. I found my niche to make a difference in healthcare as a mentor and leader in emergency medical services and that has always inspired my mission to inform colleagues about the recognition of human error and how to improve patient outcomes throughout the years. I am happy to say that this amazing journey has lead me to my new position as the Patient Safety Coordinator with the Center for Patient Safety where I can use my knowledge to educate healthcare providers on a larger scale.
