The paramedics have been performing and interpreting 12 lead EKG’s in the field since April 1997. This project has significantly decreased the amount of the time from the onset of acute myocardial infarction to Cardiac Catheterization, which opens blocked coronary arteries, at the area hospitals. Maumee is an active participant in the Lucas County STEMI by-pass system, which by rapid interpretation of 12 lead EKG’s, patients are transported to a hospital capable of radio cardiac catheterization intervention.
All EMS operations are located at the Fire Station located at 220 Illinois Avenue, Maumee, Ohio 43537.
Free blood pressure screenings are available by on duty personnel. This service is available daily from 7:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
The City of Maumee is H.I.P.A.A. compliant. What is H.I.P.A.A.? The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), was the result of efforts by the Clinton Administration and congressional healthcare reform proponents to reform healthcare. The goals and objectives of this legislation are to streamline industry inefficiencies, reduce paperwork, and make it easier to detect and prosecute fraud and abuse and enable workers of all professions to change jobs, even if they (or family members) had pre-existing medical conditions.
The HIPAA legislation had four primary objectives:
- Assure health insurance portability by eliminating job-lock due to pre-existing medical conditions.
- Reduce healthcare fraud and abuse.
- Enforce standards for health information.
- Guarantee security and privacy of health information.
To comply with the above, all personnel have been trained with a video and lecture and all have signed the “Confidentiality of Patient Information and Staff Member Verification”.
