    I’m a new Primary Care Paramedic and I’m wondering about keeping a personal journal. I’ve heard a few paramedics talk about journaling as something they do in order to keep a record of their calls. At the time, I didn’t think to ask them what their intentions were by maintaining a separate narrative of their calls and the notable things that happened between calls. I do remember, however, that one medic referred back to their journal in order to prepare for a court proceeding.

    Is journaling a common practice amongst the ems community? Is this a document that is intended for personal use only or is it something that may be used as court evidence? Is it intended as a more subjective account of events or should the writer be careful to only document objective facts?

    I would appreciate some feedback on this subject.

    Danny, I think that keeping a journal is a good idea. Remember that you are usually allowed to review your documentation if you are ever called to testify (another good reason to write good reports). If you keep a journal, take steps to protect patient identifiers and to keep your journals either locked up or if they are digital, encrypted. Most computers can do this with any file easily and securely.
