Contemplating life.

Follow your dreams…and your patient

“Every hospital should follow every patient it treats long enough to determine whether the treatment has been successful, and then to inquire ‘if not, why not’ with a view to preventing similar failures in the future.”

Ernest Codman 1914

 

Let me adapt that to our profession, one hundred years later:

“Every Paramedic Service should follow every patient it treats long enough to determine whether the treatment has been successful, and then to inquire ‘if not, why not’ with a view to preventing similar failures in the future. This information should be shared openly with staff for education purposes and to allow a greater interprofessional understanding of each role involved in patient care”
