On behalf of the WVEMS Medical Directors, we are happy to release the 2019 WVEMS Operational Protocols.  The protocol update consists of an informational video, a 25 question assessment and a schematic of the new drugs and their placement in the WVEMS drug boxes. 

WVEMS Field Coordinators will begin updating the drug boxes on December 9th with anticipated completion no later than mid-January.  During this transition period, please note that some medications may not be available.  Should you have any questions about patient care, contact “online medical direction”. 

Drug boxes that have been updated will have the following label:

2019 Protocol Update

Please keep in mind that you are NOT allowed to practice under the new protocol guidelines until your Operational Medical Director has cleared you to do so.

Some hospital pharmacies within the WVEMS region are currently experiencing a shortage of Lidocaine pre-filled syringes. As a substitute, pharmacies will provide a 100mg/5ml vial of Lidocaine during the shortage. Boxes will be appropriately marked.
