Dr. Haake has updated protocols A-10 and EE-27 to better address the necessity for an advanced level assessment before downgrading to BLS level care for transport to the hospital. If you are working an an ALS or ILS ambulance, the highest level EMS provider must assess the patient to determine if BLS care is appropriate. And, that advanced level assessment must be documented on the patient care report. Both protocols are attached below.
