Spirit Emergency Medical Services weekly log
According to Brian K. Hathaway, Spirit EMS president/CEO, Spirit EMS responded to six emergency medical dispatches from the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office 911 dispatch center, making 13 patient contacts. That’s five fewer calls than the week prior.
Four of the six 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 two dispatches in the Perry Port Salem district, which includes all of Salem and Perry townships including the village of Port Jefferson.
While there were four calls in the Houston district, there was one scene in which Spirit EMS made contact with nine patients at the scene of an injury crash. All nine patients refused transport. Spirit was aided at that scene by Houston Fire and Shelby County Sheriff’s Office deputies. Another patient refused transport after evaluation by EMS personnel. Two other patients were transported to nearby hospitals.
In the Perry Port Salem district, both Spirit EMS and Perry Port Salem Rescue were dispatched on two calls. Spirit EMS responded to both calls, while Perry Port Salem Rescue responded to one of the two. Both patients were transported from the scene.
Of the four patients transported last week, three were transported to Wilson Health and one to Kettering Health in Piqua.
Spirit EMS responded to 100% of its dispatches last week.
