Officials responded to a call of someone being injured and falling off the Mount Bonnell cliff in Austin's Covert Park around 7:30 p.m. Mount Bonnell is one of the highest points in Austin at 781 feet, according to Austin officials.

While searching for the injured visitor, crews found an "obviously deceased" patient, according to Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Services. Crews located the injured visitor and airlifted the individual to a nearby hospital, officials said.

The Austin Police Department said it is investigating the death and said the person was deceased for "several days."

Austin-Travis County EMS responded to the scene along with the Austin Fire and Police departments and STAR Flight, responded. 

APD told KXAN on Monday, August 8 that the death is not being considered suspicious at this time. It's unclear if that person also fell or how long they had been there.

The condition of the injured person who fell off the cliff is unknown at this time. No other information was provided. 

Mount Bonnell, also known as Covert Park, is a prominent point alongside the Lake Austin portion of the Colorado River in Austin.

Killexams : The ‘Big Moment’ For U.S. Healthcare

Troy Bannister is the CEO and co-founder of Particle Health. Troy has 15 years of healthcare experience as an EMT, researcher and investor.

When I started Particle Health four-plus years ago, the picture I had in my head was simple: I wanted to get an app and easily pull all of my medical records into it. Thinking about all the things developers could build on top of our medical records ushers a sense of mega potential in an industry that is unnecessarily burning cash and time everywhere we look. It happened in finance when Plaid enabled apps like Venmo, Mint and Robinhood—so why don’t we make it happen in healthcare?

But still, years later, we continue to wait. I attend weekly calls with policymakers, stakeholders and other entrepreneurs talking around the problem we so desperately need to solve, and I wonder, "How is it that we can entangle quantum particles or connect ultra-high-speed internet through hundreds of satellites orbiting our planet, but we still must use the fax machine to get our medical records?”

There is a big moment coming, however—perhaps the last of a series of moments that have yet to be properly leveraged. But still, for the optimistic, it's a moment of potential change.

The government has made it clear: U.S. citizens should have the right to access their own medical records via technically feasible ways. The rule that was set into law years ago is called “Anti-Information Blocking,” and like it sounds, its name is pointed and direct to its nature: to eliminate the blocking of access to people's own medical information (check out HealthIT.gov for more information on this important rule).

But we live in a capitalist world, and by the virtue of how it all works, even healthcare is unprotected from self-servitude. Healthcare data is valuable to those that capture it and sharing it would drastically dilute, if not extinguish, the value. Plus, it would open up risk to those that house the data. What if I discovered there was malpractice evident within my own medical records?

In the same way, Apple’s App Store shaves off 30% from every purchase or subscription, those monolith quasi-monopolies in healthcare follow the same adage of self-prioritization and profit-seeking behavior. And why shouldn’t they? This is the way it works in the U.S.—that is, unless the government steps in.

Now, the Anti-Information Blocking Rule is shaking things up a bit. It’s given rise to avenues of access never seen before. Today, a provider can use an API to search for their patient’s records across the U.S. using just their name, birth date, address and phone number with a 90% success rate. This means the historical hoarders of data are now willing to share it with other providers at risk of moral bankruptcy, but now also at risk of being fined in line with these new rules—and the adoption is past critical mass.

But what if we took the same patients and let them request their own records through the API? The only difference is that there is no doctor asking for the records in-between. Well, I’m sorry to tell you this, but those that hoard the data will not share your medical records with you today. They just flat-out refuse. We’ve tried it, and we’ve seen time and time again—no records found (even if we know they’re there).

So when is this big moment? October 2022 is kind of the last opportunity to make the Anti-Information Blocking Rule actually open up access for you and me. It’s the date when we expect real fines to be administered. So far, no real fines have been issued against violators, and honestly, I don’t know where they’d even start. I don’t know a single hospital, practice or clinic adhering to the rule today. How do we feel, as a country, about a system of government that creates rules, laws and policies but allows entire industries to ignore them completely—either directly through abstinence or indirectly through lobbied, hyper-specific loopholes? It just takes one big, expensive legal shove to loophole out of a profit-wounding compliance problem.

I don’t know about you, but I’m holding my breath. If the ONC, OIG, OCR choose to fight for your right to access your own medical records, we will likely see a renaissance of innovation blossom as we saw in Fintech several years ago. If they don’t, well, maybe it’s time to invest in Xerox.

For those hoping to take steps on this problem today, if you are having trouble getting access to your medical records, it's important to submit a complaint to the ONC here. It's easy, and it's the best way to show the government the problem at hand.

Killexams : Decatur will decide its new ambulance providers within a week, city says

DECATUR — The race to find new ambulance services for the city of Decatur is in its final stage, with a decision expected within a week.

The search for new companies to provide emergency medical coverage has been narrowed down to four: RuralMed EMS, Lakeside EMS, Echo Response EMS and Abbott/AMR EMS.

Representatives from these companies took questions at a public hearing Monday about their ability to meet the needs of the Decatur area and far beyond: current provider Decatur Ambulance Service serves a sprawling range reaching into Shelby, Christian and Piatt counties as well as all over Macon County.

“We are pleased with the responses and information we received at Monday’s administrative hearing,” said City Manager Scot Wrighton. “Following some final discussions, the city will issue licenses and facilitate a smooth transition as soon as possible.”

Hospital Sisters Health System, which runs DAS, said it wants to pull the plug on the existing service by Sept. 1, after citing rising costs and staffing problems.

Deputy City Manager Jon Kindseth told the Herald & Review that the decision on the new providers should be known “within the next week or so.”

It’s likely to be more than one company getting the contract because the city, which gets to make the final decision, has said previously that it doesn’t want to be limited to one provider. And based on the proposals submitted by the companies bidding for contracts, Kindseth said it will take more than one of them to fulfill the requirements of Decatur and the wider service area.

“I think the city kind of suspected that none of the companies seemed to have the ability immediately to be able to serve the entire need we have, which is somewhere between six and eight ALS units (Advanced Life Support ambulances) around the clock,” added Kindseth.

Members of a working group advising the city will meet Tuesday to discuss the company finalists with the city administration. The working group has members drawn from the Decatur Fire Department, HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital and Decatur Memorial Hospital, Crossing Healthcare and the Central Illinois Regional Dispatch Center.

Killexams : Thinking of becoming a paramedic? Here’s what the process involves

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Some of the most rewarding careers promote the value of human life by seeing to the provision of life-saving measures during emergency situations.

This is precisely what paramedics are trained to do.

According to the National EMS Academy, “Paramedics are healthcare professionals providing the highest level of care available outside of a hospital. Paramedics work under the supervision of a physician through written protocols or online guidance to extend advanced life support care to the sick and injured.”

As the highest level of EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) certification-holders, they are trained in all aspects of pre-hospital emergency care. This includes administering IV fluids, injections, medications, performing advanced respiratory procedures, treating wounds, performing CPR, delivering babies, and performing patient assessments.

During medical transport, they are the healthcare providers who shoulder the responsibility of seeing to the patient’s well-being and safety.

Paramedics can work on ambulances, in industrial settings, and on aeromedical transport teams.

Indeed.com says paramedics in Louisiana often make $25.80 per hour.

A person who aims to become a paramedic must first become certified as an EMT-B, which is the most basic level of EMT Training.

This kind of training is about 120-150 hours in length and typically takes six months to complete. Classes are usually offered at local community colleges.

According to EMS 1, “Most people work as EMTs for a couple of years to get some experience before undergoing the additional 1,200 to 1,800 hours of training to become a paramedic.”

Upon becoming a certified EMT- B and gaining basic experience, those who hope to become paramedics will often complete college-level biology, math, and English in order to qualify for the next step in the process.

The next step is to take on a two-year paramedic training course offered by a community college, which often includes both classroom training and clinical training in a hospital setting, on an ambulance, and with a fire department.

Classes will cover anatomy, physiology, and courses like advanced life support, advanced pediatric life support, and basic trauma life support.

The last leg of the journey in becoming a paramedic is to take the state licensing exam.

According to the Louisiana Department of Health, Louisiana’s paramedic exam costs $90.

Scenes from the Sunday afternoon incident at the air park.

Tom Barr | News Journal

WILMINGTON — One person died in the incident Sunday at the Wilmington Air Park in which an automatic fire suppression system deployed a huge mass of foam just before 2 p.m.

Tim Law, 55, an employee of Airborne Maintenance & Engineering Services (AMES) where he was a production supervisor in the Heavy Maintenance Department, died in the incident. He was an employee there for one and a half years.

The State Fire Marshal’s Office began investigating the incident Sunday afternoon. Clinton County Public Information Officer Pam Bauer said at a Monday morning news conference at the air park that investigators did not know what triggered the release of the foam.

“We do know it was not a fire, but we do not know what triggered that release,” said Bauer.

At 1:44 p.m. Sunday, Wilmington Fire & EMS was dispatched and was advised that people were trapped in a vehicle near the entrance of hangar #1006 and that one person was unaccounted for who was from an office located inside the hangar.

The Wilmington Fire Department arrived at 1:56 p.m. and began an initial search but had to vacate due to unsafe conditions, Bauer said. Mutual aid from surrounding agencies began to arrive which enabled search operations to continue, she said.

During response operations, two separate responder “MAYDAYS” were issued, reported Bauer.

The News Journal on Sunday reported that a firefighter (department not known) was trapped in the hangar and in the foam, but another firefighter said he was “OK” shortly before he was brought out on a stretcher — conscious and alert — and transported to the hospital by the Clinton Highland Fire District.

Eight first responders were transported to Clinton Memorial Hospital for medical care due to eye injury, electrocution and other physical injuries, with three transferred to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton. All eight were released, with follow-up appointments scheduled for Monday, according to Bauer.

The eight firefighters transported for medical treatment are from the following departments or districts: four with Wilmington Fire & EMS, two with SRWW (Sabina), one with Clinton Highland Joint Fire District (New Vienna), and one with the Clinton-Warren Joint Fire District (Clarksville).

The two individuals in the vehicle near the hangar entrance were rescued, Bauer said. The person originally unaccounted for was Law, she said.

Bauer said the eye injuries that occurred to first responders were related to the foam.

Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) President and CEO Rich Corrado also spoke at the news conference. ATSG is the parent company of AMES.

He started by sharing the deepest condolences of ATSG workforce colleagues to the Tim Law Family.

He also thanked all first responders, AMES employees and Logistics employees who responded Sunday, and the people of the Wilmington area and surrounding areas for their support.

ATSG has been fully cooperating with the state fire marshal’s investigation which began Sunday afternoon “and will continue as long as it is needed,” said Corrado.

“All ATSG companies are focused on safety and reliability throughout our network. Safety and training are part of our culture, and incidents such as what happened in hangar 1006 yesterday [Sunday] validate that focus,” he said.

The State Fire Marshal’s Office on Monday afternoon said it is working in conjunction with federal, state, county and local agencies to investigate the incident at the Wilmington Air Park. Investigators with the State Fire Marshal’s Code Enforcement and Fire & Explosion Investigation bureaus are on the scene as part of this ongoing investigation, the State Fire Marshal’s Office added.

They had no further investigation details to share at this time after noting the fatality and the number of injuries, but stated they will provide updates as more information becomes available.

Hangar 1006, where the incident occurred, has sometimes been referred to as the Joint Use Maintenance and Paint (J.U.M.P.) hangar. It opened in June 2014 following a new construction project.

Lt. Richard Birt of Wilmington Fire and EMS was the incident commander.

Dozens of first responders and many fire departments or districts responded Sunday. The firefighters were from Wilmington, SRWW, Clinton Highland, Blanchester-Marion Township Fire, Blanchester EMS, Chester Township, Clinton-Warren, Port William-Liberty Township, Washington Court House, Paint Creek, Lynchburg, and Salem Township-Morrow.

Others responding were the Wilmington Police Department, Clinton County EMA, Highland County EMA, Red Cross, Clinton County Coroner’s Office, and the Ohio EPA.

At about 5 p.m. Sunday the call was put out for all firefighters to exit the hangar so foam could be blown and sprayed outside, according to police scanner traffic.

Killexams : 9 injured in OTR mass shooting, Cincinnati police search for at least 2 shooters

CINCINNATI — Two suspects remain at-large after nine people were hurt in a shooting along Main Street in Over-the-Rhine early Sunday morning, said CPD Assistant Chief Michael John.

According to CPD, at approximately 1:39 a.m., officers responded to Main and 13th streets in OTR to disperse a large, disorderly crowd. In the process of breaking up the crowd, two groups were involved in a fight. CPD said at least two individuals involved in the fight pulled out firearms and exchanged gunfire near the intersection of Main and Woodward streets. At least 15 rounds were fired, investigators said.

John said eight males and one female ranging in age between 23 and 47 were either taken to UC Medical Center by EMS or self-transported to the hospital. All were released from the hospital by 10:30 a.m. Sunday.

The ATF is offering a $5,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest and conviction of the suspects involved. No suspect descriptions have been released.

Anyone with information should call the ATF at 1-888-ATF-TIPS (888-283-8477). Telephone tips can also be made to 513-413-4625 or to Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040. Individuals may also email ATFTips@atf.gov, or contact ATF through its website at www.atf.gov/contact/atf-tips.

Video captured by Matt Euson shows people frantically running past his building at 1302 Main Street during rapid gunfire.

Two officers assigned to the Civil Disturbance Response Team (CDRT) saw an individual shooting south of that intersection on Main Street. CPD said one of those CDRT officers, Joe Shook, discharged one round from their gun at that individual. CPD said the individual fled east toward Sycamore Street.

"We have one Cincinnati police officer that discharged one round, and we do not know if that officer struck the individual that he was firing the gun at," John said. "What I can tell you is the individual he was shooting at was actively firing a firearm at that time."

CPD said Shook has been with the department since January 2016. Assistant Chief John said Shook's actions undoubtedly saved lives.

Two bullet holes in OTR building

John said CPD deployed two "bang balls" — percussion instruments used by police — into the street to disperse the large crowd and attend to the injured. He said officers then applied tourniquets at the scene.

Police had Main Street shut down at multiple different cross streets for multiple hours. All roads have since reopened.

Alongside the OTR shooting, John said there was also another shooting incident in the Central Business District where two people were shot. John said the two incidents were not connected.

"Today's events are completely and totally unacceptable," said Cincinnati Mayor Aftab Pureval. "The use of guns to solve disputes cannot become a normal part of our culture. I want to express the city's gratitude to the officers on the scene. Their quick response likely saved many more from injury and prevented loss of life."

Police continue to investigate the shooting and said the investigation is still in the preliminary stages.

"We know that a lot of people that left the scene that may have seen something," John said. "We're looking for any witness statements we can get. So, if somebody has something — if they have video footage, something on their phone — of course we would want to use that to see if we can ascertain exactly how this event evolved."

CPD is currently looking for at least 2 shooters. They are asking anyone that may have witnessed this incident or has additional information to contact the CPD Criminal Investigations Section at 513-352-3542.

Killexams : Attorney for EMT calls for RPD Investigator to be fired

“This officer lost his cool,” says Elliot Shields, an Attorney for EMT Lekia Smith who is seen in the video. Her reaction was, "I have a priority-one call I need to get my patient inside, my identification is in the front seat and as soon as I make sure that my patient is inside and receiving the emergency medical treatment that they need I will get you my identification,” Shields tells News10NBC.

News10NBC did some digging into public disciplinary records and found two prior incidents involving Charles LoTempio.   In April of 2013, a letter of reprimand was placed in his file following an incident where he performed a strip search of a man that included visually checking his private area without a search warrant.  

An internal RPD investigation also found that in December of 2013, LoTempio used “unnecessary and/or excessive force” when he struck a man in the mouth with a flashlight while making an arrest.  That man reported losing four teeth and chipping two others.  Internal affairs also found that LoTempio submitted an erroneous “subject resistance report” following that incident.  At the time, then-Police Chief Michael Ciminelli recommended that LoTempio be suspended for 60-days without pay.  Ultimately, LoTempio pleaded guilty to both charges and was suspended for 30-days without pay.  

“We don't need officers like LoTempio out there making the City Of Rochester look bad, making the Rochester Police Department look bad and endangering the lives of people in the City of Rochester,” Shields says.

In a statement, the Rochester Locust Club says in part, “the incident in question reached a mutually acceptable resolution that day when both the investigator and the EMT were able to jointly discuss the reasons for their actions and both accepted each other’s explanations.”

Smith’s attorney says that’s not exactly how it went. “After my client was arrested, put in handcuffs, and placed in the back of the vehicle. LoTempio eventually got into the back of the vehicle with her and said you know this all could've been avoided if you had just said 'my bad'—Well, that's placing the blame on her when he's the one that did everything wrong, it's that alternate reality that is the problem. It's his inability to see and accept responsibility for his actions that's the problem and we don't need officers like that on the streets in the City of Rochester,” Shields says.

A spokesman for Strong Memorial Hospital tells News10NBC that the Ambulance bay is shared by all first responders on official business.  It’s already a small area, made smaller by latest construction.  No official accident report was filed with URMC Security but RPD did request both interior and exterior video from the area for its internal investigation.

Killexams : Ga. pediatrician arrested for allegedly attacking paramedic

When EMS arrived to transport a patient, the doctor allegedly attacked the paramedic after a disagreement regarding the medical capabilities of the EMTs on scene

By EMS1 Staff

COBB COUNTY, Ga. — A pediatrician was charged after allegedly attacking a paramedic who responded to a transfer request at this office, WJCL reported.

Dr. Melvin Perry was arrested after reportedly punching a female paramedic and “swinging around” an oxygen tank after a Puckett EMS crew arrived to transport an infant from Perry’s office to a nearby hospital.

According to court documents, Perry became involved in a heated argument with the paramedic regarding the medical capabilities of the EMTs on scene and attacked the paramedic, knocking her to the ground.

The paramedic was treated for minor injuries due to the incident. Perry was arrested and has since made bond.

Killexams : Doctor Attacks GA Paramedic

A pediatrician is accused of attacking a paramedic and swinging an oxygen tank at her during an argument over an infant’s medical care, according to Georgia authorities.

Dr. Melvin Gerald Perry was arrested at his Austell office on Thursday, July 21, after authorities said he assaulted a Puckett EMS employee he called to transport a baby in need of hospital treatment, local outlets reported, citing an arrest warrant from the Cobb County Police Department.

The two argued over “the type of treatment and capabilities of the other EMTs” before Perry lunged at the paramedic and wrestled her to the ground, WAGA reported.

“Said accused struck said victim with closed fist punches causing a laceration to said victim’s left ear canal,” the arrest warrant states, according to the news station. “During the course of the assault, said accused retrieved a metal oxygen tank and swung it repeatedly during the altercation, striking the wall of the pediatrician’s office and hindering the EMTs and said victim from removing the infant and giving treatment.”

McClatchy News reached out to Perry’s office for comment on July 27 and was awaiting a response.

Firefighters stopped the attack before officers arrived, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported, citing the warrant. Perry was arrested and charged with felony willful interference with emergency medical personnel and misdemeanor battery, according to the warrant.

He was booked into the Cobb County Adult Detention Center on July 21 and released after posting $5,000 bond, online records show.

The paramedic suffered minor injuries in the attack, a Puckett EMS spokesperson told WSB-TV. The baby they were called to treat was not hurt.

Perry is listed as the sole doctor at Total Care Pediatrics in Austell, according to a website for his medical practice. He earned his doctor of medicine from Louisiana State University School of Medicine and completed a fellowship at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, his biography reads.

Austell is about 20 miles northwest of downtown Atlanta.

Killexams : Eagle County Paramedic Services partners with Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival program

Eagle County Paramedic Services this week issued the following press release on its agreement with the Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival (CARES) program:

On July 1, 2022 Eagle County Paramedic Services (ECPS) entered into an agreement with the Cardiac Arrest Registry to Enhance Survival (CARES) program to act as the fiscal agent until the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) allocates this role. The signing of HB22-1251 established the Office of Cardiac Arrest Management and went into effect on July 1, 2022; the office is projected to be staffed and functioning in fall 2022. 

In 2016, Eagle County Paramedic Services formally enrolled in the CARES program to collect and compile quantitative data on the number of Sudden Cardiac Arrest victims and measure improvement and outcomes. 

“CARES data is now being compiled in Eagle County and statewide so that we can quantify the efficacy of our programs in comparison with national results,” said Will Dunn, chief clinical officer at ECPS. “Eagle County Paramedic Services is passionate about out-of-hospital cardiac arrest care and supporting the CARES program as a statewide initiative.” 

Under this relationship, ECPS will work with CARES Coordinator Jillian Moore to continue to successfully grow and monitor the program until CDPHE establishes the Office of Cardiac Arrest Management. Goals include expanding the program across the state, developing a system improvement program and creating a transition plan for CDPHE. ECPS will assist CARES in preparing an outreach campaign to raise public awareness and maintaining a list of training and education programs offered in Colorado to teach life-saving skills. 

“Remarkably, this relationship has come full circle,” said Lynn Blake, a sudden cardiac arrest survivor and Board Member of the Eagle County Paramedic Services. “Seven years ago, I asked ECPS to implement the CARES registry in Eagle County. I offered to pay the registration fee if they would enter cases into the registry. They agreed, remained supportive and have contributed data ever since. Eagle County proved to have higher than average survival rates year over year. When the statewide project needed temporary oversight, ECPS immediately offered to assist. It’s meaningful to begin and end this journey with ECPS. From saving my life on Feb 14, 2007, supporting the CARES project and contributing to the many more lives saved from assisting with statewide expansion, I am eternally grateful to ECPS for all they do to save lives.”

Once CDPHE assumes responsibility for CARES, ECPS will continue to compile data on out-of-hospital cardiac arrest to continue achieving their mission of providing skilled, professional and compassionate healthcare to the community.

“The CARES program is one of the greatest opportunities that we have in emergency medicine to accrue real-time data to Excellerate quality of treatments and save lives,” said Brandon Daruna, CEO of Eagle County Paramedic Services. “We are proud to serve as the fiscal agent for CARES and provide support to this truly life-changing program.” 

Colorado overall SCA survival (from onset to hospital discharge) in 2021 was 12.3%, ranking the state fifth in the nation and CARES captured 3,727 SCA cases in Colorado. Colorado EMS participation increased by 40.3% since 2019; as of 2021, there is now 100% hospital participation in the state.
