In this episode we continue our discussion pertaining to Section 7 of the CMS Cost Data Reporting Instrument with a discussion about Section 7.1 and the reporting of costs associated with Paid Staff within your organization.  It’s a dollars and cents discussion of hourly wages, salaries and benefits, including the number of hours worked by individuals for the annual reporting period and with a few cautions to add along the way.  We go deeper into the Section 7 jungle and we’re glad that you’re joining on this Cost Data Collection safari!

EM2A.pngWelcome to the June 2020 edition of Excuse My Medic (EM2).  Today's EM2 provides an insightful recap of where we we are as we hopefully, head out of this pandemic (God Willing).  What kind of destruction is now in our rear view mirror which we are forced to recover from for months, if not years to come.  The EM2 Team takes a closer look.  

It's also a time to laugh.  It's a pretty serious world out there right now and we've taken a few moments that will provide a bit of a respite and bring a brighter spot to your day.  These guys got each other going pretty good during this episode so be sure to take part and enjoy. Laugh along with us as we verbally loft a few jabs at  each other with the EMS Word of the Day and some outright zany/bizarre EMS stories from around the country.     

So, come along with the ole guys and enjoy this edition of EM2. Hey, stay safe out there!
