Paramedic Charged with Prescription Drug Fraud

We’ll kick off the news this week with a news item and link sent in from a MedicCast audience member about an EMT charged with trying to get prescription drugs with counterfeit prescriptions.

Three Yahoos Steal and Sell Ambulance

In the next news item, we go from bad EMS news to absurd EMS news. Three boneheads in Texas stole an ambulance recently. Now I ask you, what do you do with a stolen ambulance? Go for a ride? Take a friend to the hospital? How about try to sell it to a junk yard for scrap metal?

University of Arkansas Starts EMS Bachelor’s Program

Finally in the news this week is a story out of Arkansas from their University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. They are starting an emergency medical services bachelor’s degree program that is aimed at improving leadership and clinical skills and education of their graduates.

Let’s get in to this week’s tip segment with a special video segment recorded in the podcast studio at EMS Today 2013 in Washington, D.C. Here’s a segment we recorded as part of our finale segment with JEMS Editor-in-Chief A. J. Heightman and Managing Editor Jennifer Berry who came on with myself and Chris Montera to chat with us about the conference, it’s new venue for the next few years in Washington, D.C., and what to look forward to in next year’s EMS Today 2014.

Let’s get into that video segment in a second after a special thank you to EMS Today, JEMS.com, Pennwell and Physio-Control for making this possible by allowing our ProMed Podcast Studio to broadcast from the conference floor and record some of the exciting events and speakers there.
