Spirit Emergency Medical Services weekly log
According to Brian K. Hathaway, Spirit EMS president/CEO, Spirit EMS responded to 11 emergency medical dispatches from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office 911 dispatch center, making 13 patient contacts. That’s the same number of calls as the week prior.
Six of the 11 calls were in the Houston EMS district which includes Loramie and Washington townships including the village of Lockington and excluding the village of Russia. There were five dispatches in the Perry Port Salem district, which includes all of Salem and Perry townships including the village of Port Jefferson.
Seven of the nine patients were transported to the hospital from scenes in the Houston district. Two patients refused transport after being evaluated by EMS personnel. One of the patients to refuse transport was the driver of a truck that overturned on icy roads. Spirit EMS was assisted at that scene by Russia Fire and Shelby County deputies. In a separate crash, where three people were transported from the scene, Shelby County deputies assisted Spirit EMS. At a third crash, Houston firefighters assisted Spirit EMS as did deputies from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office.
In the Perry Port Salem district, both Spirit EMS and Perry Port Salem Rescue were dispatched to five calls. Spirit EMS responded to all five calls, while Perry Port Salem Rescue responded to three of the five. Four of the five patients were transported; two by Spirit and two by Perry Port Salem Rescue. Port Jefferson Fire was called to assist with lifting at one scene. One person was deceased upon EMS arrival. Shelby County deputies assisted at that scene.
Of the 11 patients transported last week, six were transported to Wilson Health, two to Upper Valley Medical Center in Troy, and three to Kettering Health in Piqua.
Spirit EMS responded to 100% of its dispatches last week.
