Most common error made when picking:
  • May not exceed a 12 hour shift.  Must have 8 hours of no clinical time or work schedule prior to the start of a clinical.  Cannot enter into a clinical if it will require you to be awake for more than 20 hours straight upon completion of clinical.
  • Sign up is based on GPA and class ranking by group.
  • If you make an error while signing up, completely erase your name – do not simply cross it out. Failure to follow this very simple rule will get you removed entirely from the schedule and you will get whatever is left at the end of the sign-up period.
  • Sign up in pencil only. Failure to follow this very simple rule will get you removed entirely from the schedule and you will get whatever is left at the end of the sign-up period.
 
Make certain you have your future personal schedule and obligations taken into consideration when you sign up. Once the final schedule is produced and distributed, there will be NO CHANGES except for very good reasons which will be at the discretion of the Program Administrator. Generally, anything short of your death is not a valid excuse and even then, you must bring a note from your undertaker. If you forgot about your vacation in Hawaii or some big family event, tough

————HOW TO PICK———- After first 12 hour ED shift participants have a choice of doing another 12 hour ED or the 10/14 hour Ambulance clinical. Upon completion of three ED and one 10/14hr Ambulance shift participants can conduct their 24 hour internship. Most common error made when picking:
  • May not exceed a 12 hour shift.  Must have 8 hours of no clinical time prior to the start of another clinical.  Cannot enter into a clinical if it will require you to be awake for more than 20 hours straight upon completion of clinical.

Do not let this happen to you!!!!!!!!

This came from a clinical site.   We are sharing this information so fellow classmates can raise the professional image of your class as viewed by other allied healthcare professionals secondary to the following letter.  The success of a paramedic program has two critical components – the staff and the participant.  The actions of only one person can affect all others.  The participants wear the same uniforms and the same name tags.  Until a clinical site preceptor(s) get to know the student as an individual you are ALL lumped together being know as “blue shirts”. The following does not help your fellow students, staff, or the program.

On XXXXXXX I had [student] with me.  The shift started out with the student 
wanting to follow [staff] around while I put my # up in the rooms. 
[Student] was very gungho on poking people but didn't want to be part of 
anything else. [Student] was VERY tired ALL shift. I asked [student] if they had a [long work week]
and [student] said, "No I am always this way." [Student] was bragging in front of 
one of the Doctors that [student] could hit a vein behind the ear. (The doctor 
was trying to get an art stick at the time on a child that was a hard 
stick. And the parents were in the room and upset with the amount of 
times the child had been stuck already.) I was told but didn't hear for 
myself that [student] was making inappropriate comments, sexual in nature, in 
patient rooms. When I asked [student] to help me with setting up a room for an 
admit [student] acted very put out by the whole thing.

I have had two other students with me and I have not had ANY of these 
issues with the other two. Matter of fact they were ready to learn 
EVERYTHING they could and jumped in every chance they got. 

I was not going to say anything until I saw how [student] was on his second 
rotation but I was told that I really needed to let you [hospital education department] know what 
happened so if things do not change there was documentation of this with [student's] 
first shift. I have already told [other preceptors] what 
[preceptor] and I had experienced with [student]. 

I did document on [student's] paper needed improvement in all the areas with a 
comment on each, but I didn't go into detail on there like I have in 
this email.

Thank you and sorry to report this,
[staff preceptor]

Don’t let this happen to you: A student no-showed to an internship.  Called the school at 07:25 to inform  that they are ill.  No call to the station or school prior to the start of the shift.  At 07:45 the EMS Lieutenant as well as a student from another station contacted the school to inform us that we have a student no-show.  Also at 07:45 the Admin Training Captain was notified of the no-show.  At 08:15 the Training Coordinator was notified. Please make it to the shifts on time.  If you are going to be 1 minute late or the possibility of being late call the station and the school.  The issue with this student was not that he was ill but rather the failure to make the proper and required notifications.
