EM2A.pngWelcome to the November 2020 edition of Excuse My Medic (EM2).  We've got a program that you will be telling your grandkids and neighbors about for years to come, trust me.  Joining us for this episode is our good friend Steve Wirth from the National EMS Law Firm of Page, Wolfberg & Wirth, LLC. Steve joins us to discuss something near and dear to every EMS professional...documentation.  Steve reviews the Top Ten (a la Late Night with David Letterman) documentation errors that he has seen over his years.  Don't miss Steve's talk along with some backseat banter from the EM2 regulars. You're gonna like this, guaranteed. 

We also have Positive EMS as well as the EMS Word of the Day and Offbeat EMS Stories.  So, tune in for some great information and fun along the way.  We have to keep laughing folks and EM2 is your prescription.
