Be Ready To Respond to a Medical Emergency
Most medical practices inevitably need to provide medical help to someone experiencing one of the five most common medical emergency conditions. You’ll want to make sure you have the right medications and devices—and know how to use them.
“The emergency should be the only thing that is unplanned,” says Dr. Arthur Pancioli, chair of the emergency medicine department at University of Cincinnati and member of HealthFirst’s Medical Advisory Board.
“All of the rest is up to you. Preparation, the right equipment, and the right medications save lives,” he says.
