    Hospital staff members who comprise a Hospital Emergency Response Team, such as physicians, nurses, administrators, security personnel, environmental staff, and other hospital staff.

    Overview

    The Hospital Emergency Response Training for Mass Casualty Incidents (HERT) course addresses healthcare response at the operations level for the facility and its personnel. This course prepares healthcare responders to utilize the Hospital Incident Command System — integrating into the community emergency response network while operating an Emergency Treatment Area as hospital first responders during a mass casualty incident involving patient contamination. The healthcare responders will determine and use appropriate personal protective equipment and conduct triage followed by decontamination of ambulatory and nonambulatory patients as members of a Hospital Emergency Response Team.

    Below are some, but not all, of the critical skill sets learned during this training program:

    ·        Analyze the need, composition, and use of a Hospital Emergency Treatment Team during an emergency, mass casualty incident, or disaster situation.

    ·        Summarize the organization and operation of the Hospital Incident Command System as it integrates with the Incident Command System during response to mass casualty incident.

    ·        Differentiate the medical responses to a variety of illnesses and injuries that may result from a mass casualty incident.

    ·        Select and use the appropriate level of personal protective equipment as hospital first receivers in response to a disaster involving patient contamination.

    ·        Structure the healthcare facility Emergency Treatment Area to support medical operations in response a mass casualty incident.

    ·        Establish a Hospital Emergency Response Team that meets all safety requirements, provides security to the hospital, and efficiently manages patients for processing into the hospital facility for follow-up treatment.

    ·        Compare decontamination methods and procedures.

    ·        Perform Simple Triage and Rapid Treatment© (START) and JumpSTART procedures within the Emergency Treatment Area during a hospital response to a mass casualty incident involving contamination.

    ·        Conduct operations in an Emergency Treatment Area while wearing appropriate personal protective equipment in response to a mass casualty incident involving contamination.

    ·        Conduct an effective medical response to a mass casualty incident using the Hospital Emergency Response Team approach.

    The goal of the Foundation for Prehospital Medicine Research is to contribute to the forward progression of the EMS profession through science and ultimately, by inspiring and empowering healthcare professionals to become researchers. The Research Summit allows us to come together to bring EMS providers and administrators, biostatisticians, and novices from across the healthcare spectrum to participate in group activities that promote learning about research while creating publishable abstracts. Research is an integral component of the EMS profession and ultimately determines how we as healthcare providers practice prehospital medicine. Your involvement today could lead to new discoveries that may change the way that EMS responds to emergencies tomorrow.

    Psychological Trauma In EMS Patients
     

    NAEMT's Psychological Trauma in EMS Patients (PTEP) course gives EMS practitioners the resources they need to help alleviate patients’ hidden wounds – intense fear, stress and pain – during a medical emergency. PTEP educates EMS practitioners about the biological underpinnings of psychological trauma, the short and long-term impact on the brain and body, and warning signs that a patient is experiencing extreme psychological distress. EMS practitioners are also taught strategies and techniques to alleviate patients’ distress and help patients cope with what they’re experiencing to ward off lingering effects.
