Scenario 4-

As the EMS supervisor on duty you have been dispatched to a report of CPR in progress to assist units enroute.

When you arrive on scene you are given a verbal report as follows:

“We found Mr um, Jones, or whatever here on the bed, all blue so we pulled him down and started CPR at 30-2, the AED is broken, so no luck there.  Our medic has gone for the tube I dunno, maybe three times now with no luck so we’re just bagging right now.  We got a student Medic on the ambulance so he’s going for a line, got a 22g.  I think we have it all dialed in here Captain.”

Cite specific protocol or policy deviations and your actions both on the scene and after patient care has concluded.
