Here is an overview of significant events from this period’s activities:

Thursday, May 3 at approximately 8:34 pm: 

E2 was dispatched on a report of 1 PT with injuries to a lower extremity. Upon arrival crew members found the PT seated on the floor complaining of a possible fracture to the lower leg/ankle. Baseline vitals were obtained and the injury was immobilized. EMS arrived on scene, PT care was transferred, and E2 assisted with packaging the PT for transport as well as loading them into the waiting ambulance for transport to an area hospital.

Saturday, May 5 at approximately 9:28 am: 

E2 was dispatched on a report of an unresponsive person. EMS arrived on scene prior to E2 and began PT care. E2 arrived to find EMS providing CPR and bag valve mask ventilation. E2’s paramedic established an intraosseous infusion and provided resuscitation drugs. The rest of the crew assisted EMS as needed, including packaging the PT for transport and loading them into the ambulance. The PT was transported emergency traffic to an area hospital.

Tuesday, May 8 at approximately 7:14 am: 

E2 was dispatched on a medical call for a report of a possible broken ankle. Upon arrival, crew members found 1 PT lying in the hallway where they had fallen. One of E2’s EMT/IVs began a rapid trauma assessment and noted an obvious deformity in the PT’s lower leg/ankle region. Baseline vitals were taken, and PT care was transferred as EMS arrived on scene at about this time. The PT was loaded onto a stair chair to be taken down to the first floor of the home, before being packaged for transport and loaded into the ambulance. The PT was transported to an area hospital for further treatment of their injuries.
