Well, finally got a chance to compose the following. This is just the 911 stuff, ending 12/31/2004.
Notice that there is not always a 1-1 ratio between a “call” and a “patient” – sometimes multiple patients in a call (e.g. MVC, a car crash) and sometimes the patient doesn’t want to go…
Number of calls: 231
Average time from tone-drop to doorstop: 4 minutes
|Youngest Patient||Born in Ambulance|
|Oldest Patient||95 Years|
|Average Pt. Age||37.68 years|
|Of These Patients…|
|Treated, Transferred Care||29|
|Treated and Released||2|
|Patient Refused Care||43|
|Dead at Scene||2|
Treated, transferred care usually refers to the fact that sometimes (often!) we need a medic to transport the patient (they need IVs, ECG en route, etc.)
Treated and Released usually means into the custody of PD.
|Injuries from Fire||1|
|Injuries from Assaults||9|
|Injuries from MVC||45|
|Mechanism of Injury (Non-Medical)|
|MVC – Public Road||43|
|Pedestrian Traffic Accident||1|
Notice above that we have 8 assaults, but 9 “Injuries from Assaults” – not sure how that came about, unless someone assaulted someone with a bicycle, or what…?
