Upon leaving regulation enforcement, Powers opened a non-public regulation observe in Ashland Metropolis, TN in 2000 and concurrently labored part-time as an Assistant Public Defender. Though personal observe was profitable, the will to serve the neighborhood was extra rewarding. After closing his personal observe and dealing as a full-time Assistant Public Defender within the twenty third Judicial District for roughly a yr, Powers accepted the place of Assistant District Lawyer Common for the twenty third Judicial District in 2006 and has remained serving in that capability since.

I consider that it takes the entire “village” working collectively to achieve the true supply of the underlying drug drawback. As an influential neighborhood chief, I’ll try to turn out to be a significant a part of the proactive resolution somewhat than merely a part of the response after the actual fact.

Robertson County Emergency Medical Providers and our Assistant Director Josh Rice have been featured within the August concern of EMS World journal!


Meet Your Native Medic…

As I strategy my eighth decade, I’m preoccupied with points that will not concern paramedics of their prime. For instance, what number of tooth can I lose and nonetheless eat a bagel? Will I hold getting shorter? Do diapers work the best way they did on my daughter 40 years in the past? And no matter occurred to my pocket comb?

A extra vital query—one that every one adults however particularly seniors like me ought to be asking—is, Can I rely on my EMS supplier? Possibly yours is identical one for which you’re employed, during which case you already know the reply. However for many people, together with nearly everybody not in EMS, the primary time we meet our native rescuers is the primary time we actually want them.

I made a decision to not wait that lengthy. I visited my hometown squad, Robertson County (Tenn.) EMS, and sat with their new assistant director, Josh Rice, on a carefree spring day after I had the posh of neither answering nor experiencing an emergency.

From Tikrit to Tennessee
Josh is an fascinating man. His dad was within the oil enterprise and moved the household everywhere in the U.S.—as far north as Alaska and as far south as Texas. At 18 he joined the Military and was despatched to EMT faculty at Fort Campbell, Ky. earlier than his 1999 deployment to Egypt.

“They wanted additional medics,” Rice remembers. “On the time I had zero curiosity in EMS. I didn’t know something about it. I needed to ask certainly one of my platoon sergeants what EMT meant. He checked out me like I used to be an fool and stated, ‘You understand, woo woo woo—the ambulance?’”

Josh loved his introduction to prehospital care however realized he lacked expertise.

“I developed a relationship with the bottom hospital and volunteered all my free time earlier than we deployed,” he says. “I partnered with among the finest army medics and particular ops guys. They taught me quite a bit about responding to emergencies in the midst of nowhere.

“Once I was discharged 4 years later, I went to paramedic faculty and did contract work abroad—locations like Iraq and Afghanistan. It was the form of life-style I used to be on the lookout for and gave me an opportunity to observe my abilities.”

Rice got here house in 2013 and was employed by Robertson County, a middle-Tennessee company that dealt with greater than 10,000 calls final yr. By 2015 he was their coaching officer—a place he held till his promotion final Might. One among his priorities, he instructed me, is to “suppose exterior the field.”

“I’ve by no means appreciated the perspective, Effectively, we’ve at all times executed it this manner, so let’s hold doing it. That’s not ok. Now we have to determine learn how to make it higher.”

Luckily for Rice, RCEMS turned out to be a very good place to experiment.

Southern State of the Artwork
One among Josh’s early initiatives was to remove backboards throughout transport. “We nonetheless use them to maneuver sufferers,” he says. “Apart from that, the proof exhibits they do extra hurt than good.

“We’ll finally eliminate standard c-collars, too. We’re really attempting a brand new type that appears like a vacuum splint for the neck. I did some analysis, purchased a couple of, and commenced stocking them on our ambulances.

“We have been additionally early adapters of video laryngoscopy and capnography,” Rice provides. “And IOs have been routine at Robertson for some time.”

That’s quite a bit for an old-timer to course of. Having been boarded and collared greater than as soon as, I’m undecided how I’d really feel sitting up on a stretcher with a balloon round my neck. I suppose I’d should remind myself that 1000’s of medical doctors have graduated highschool, school, and medical faculty since I final positioned a tube or began an IV. I ought to in all probability shut up and let the children take over, but when they fight tapping my bone marrow with energy instruments, they’re going to wish a much bigger ambulance.

Josh was sympathetic, if not 100% reassuring: “Mike, we solely do IOs when somebody wants meds or fluid proper now,” he insists.

OK—possibly. On second thought, no.

Evolving as an Company and Business
Protocols and procedures are vital, however what concerning the greater image? What’s it like working for a municipal service that’s as a lot nation as metropolis?

“Due to the agricultural areas and prolonged response instances, we prepare our individuals to be like flight crews,” says Rice. “We encourage them to turn out to be critical-care medics and equip them for that mission.

“For some time we had solely two or three CCs. Now most of our full-time medics have that certification and are paid for it.

“As for EMTs, after I began you stayed at that degree for a couple of years earlier than advancing. Now we’re seeing some who go straight from primary to paramedic. I’m undecided if that’s a very good factor or dangerous factor—I assume it relies on the particular person. I can actually perceive wanting to earn more money.”

Talking of wages, when Robertson County started shedding workers to Nashville final yr, Josh assumed the primary concern was pay. Exit interviews painted a special image: Some individuals simply didn’t wish to do 24-hour shifts anymore.

“We’re going to vary to 12s,” says Rice. “It’s not only a retention factor; there are issues of safety. Nonetheless, it’ll price us over one million {dollars} to start out.”

Lengthy shifts aren’t the one drawback. In line with Rice, Tennessee surveyed EMS personnel proper earlier than COVID and located poor management was a much bigger dissatisfier than low pay.

“I believe we’d like formal management coaching like within the army,” the 41-year-old supervisor says. “They don’t simply make you a lieutenant and say, ‘Have at it.’ It’s a must to go to high school first.”

Household Issues
It’s arduous to evaluate an organization’s tradition from a distance, so I requested Josh for a narrative that will assist outline RCEMS for these of us who haven’t ridden there. He instructed me this:

“5 – 6 years in the past, my companion and I have been working the night time shift and received referred to as to a construction hearth as we have been leaving the hospital. Once we received there this man got here towards us with pores and skin hanging from his arms. Seems he had second- and third-degree burns to 55% of his physique. I keep in mind that prefer it was yesterday.

“He had his little woman with him. She was burned as properly, though not as badly. We received each of them behind the truck and commenced engaged on them.

“Dad was dangerous, actually dangerous, just about from the face down. I used to be specializing in him when the aspect door opened and the fireplace division handed us one other affected person—a dull toddler. I’d seen dangerous stuff within the army, however this made me freeze up for a second or two. Then they introduced us three extra youngsters, all useless.

“I used to be nonetheless engaged on dad, attempting to intubate him. I couldn’t, so I did a surgical airway and referred to as for one more unit. By then we had the daddy, the daughter, and 4 useless kids on our ambulance.

“When it was over off-duty crews volunteered to fill in for us so my companion and I wouldn’t should take any extra calls that night time. The captain shut us down, and we have been debriefed.

“The daddy really survived. The daughter too. I’m pleased with the care they received from everybody concerned, however what I respect most is the best way Robertson rallied round us and confirmed what a decent household we’re. I inform new workers that the perfect factor about working right here isn’t the cool instruments or the stuff we do with them, however the truth that we’re nonetheless sufficiently small to know one another rather well. We’ll bicker and act loopy typically, however we’re right here for one another.”

A Place of Consolation
After we talked a bit extra about life in and outdoors EMS, I spotted Rice and I’ve heaps in widespread: He’s a medic, and I’m a medic. He performs hockey, and I performed hockey. He’s a younger man with an entire profession forward of him, and…did I point out I performed hockey?

Yep, it’s simple to really feel insufficient in comparison with in the present day’s hard-chargers and free-thinkers. Being one thrombus from a visit within the woo-woo truck doesn’t assist, however I’m completely happy to have Robertson Couty standing by. I like their mixture of youthful enthusiasm and steely-eyed expertise, plus devices with otherworldly wave types I wouldn’t discover on my outdated Lifepak 5.

I belief Josh and his individuals. If I would like them, I promise to not act like an obnoxious has-been who hasn’t seen a affected person since 2013. Simply don’t come at me with a drill.

Mike Rubin is a paramedic in Nashville and a member of EMS World’s editorial advisory board.
