Covid-19: EMS Alternative Destinations

Report Information

THIS IS NOT YET IN EFFECT – PENDING REGIONAL ACTIVATION

EMS providers may transport a patient to an alternate destination, other than a receiving facility as defined below, when ordered by a medical command physician.  It is the Bureaus desire to give EMS agencies, medical facilities, and patients the flexibility needed to be able to respond to the current public health emergency.

*A receiving facility shall include, but need not be limited to, a fixed location having an organized emergency department, including a physician trained to manage cardiac, trauma, pediatric, medical, behavioral and all-hazards emergencies, who is present in the facility and available to the emergency department 24 hours per day and seven days per week.
