Based on the CDC recommendation for social distancing – our classes will continue, smaller in size and with modified curriculum to reduce the potential spread of contamination. And based on the CDC recommendation for people to consider wearing masks when they are in public, we are recommending students bring masks to wear during our classes as well.

We are not accepting walk in registrations in our office. All registrations will be taken by phone or on our website, MedicalTraining.cc. You should request your textbooks to be shipped or they can be left outside the door here, with your name on them.

We will modify this process as the CDC advises.

Thank you for understanding.

COVID-19 Precautions

Keeping Our Students Safe

EMC is doing our part to keep all our students safe during our courses. Keep reading to view our Sanitation Procedures & Student Screening Procedure.

March 2020 Sanitization Procedure

Special Staffing and Cleansing/Sanitizing Procedure

March 2020 

Based on the fact that our clients (hospitals, medical facilities) have asked us to continue with mandatory certification courses, we have implemented the following in any course we present:

  • Provide pre-assessment evaluation of participants both prior to and at the beginning of each course.
  • Reduce class size to maintain social distancing.

In keeping with the World Health Organization and CDC recommendations for social distancing and safety during resuscitation training, as published by the AHA on March 10th, 2020, we will employ the following actions during our classes.

Students will be questioned about the status of their health prior to entering the class. Any student who comes to class with a cough, sneeze, or appears ill should be asked to re-register for another class, no charge. Our goal is obviously not to have somebody in the class coughing and sneezing that might have any type of illness.

GENERAL EQUIPMENT:

  • Prior to, during (as appropriate) and after class; any equipment utilized by students (BVM, MASKS, AED) should be cleaned with the standard disinfectant. Participants should clean their hands with soap and water or sanitizing solution/wipes prior to manikin use. Utilization of gloves by participants may be done as well. (Provided with equipment).
  • We are reducing class size or increasing classroom space to allow for participants to maintain appropriate “social distancing.”

CPR MANIKINS:

  • CPR manikins- follow our procedure for General Equipment. Use sanitizer on manikin chest, head, etc. (anywhere students may touch the manikin) prior, during (as appropriate between students) and after the class. Change manikin “lung” anytime mouth to “barrier” or mouth to “mask” is used.
  • Individual disposable barrier devices for both of these procedures are provided for students.
  • If utilizing non-consumable equipment between students, wipe those supplies down with sanitizer as well (BVM mask, etc.) as in general.
  • Utilization of gloves by participants may be done as well (provided with equipment).

ACLS, PALS & Trauma Manikins:

  • Follow procedure for general cleansing/sanitizing on any of the manikins or equipment being used, before, during (as appropriate between students) and after the course.
  • Participants should clean their hands with soap and water or sanitizing solution wipes prior to manikin use.
  • There is no “mouth to” techniques in these courses hence the routine per class changing of lungs may not be necessary.
  • Utilization of gloves by participants to be done as well (provided with equipment).

Effective March 2020, along with the above current policy, we will be adding the following:

  • Gloves will be sent to each class for students to utilize on manikins- along with the proper hygiene. Students who work at medical facilities will be told they can bring their own gloves (we will provide Medium & XL).
  • We will have additional antiseptic at each class.
  • No students will perform “mouth to” techniques. They can verbalize after opening the airway. “Give 2 slow breaths”
  • We will not have students practicing with face shields, valves or pocket masks until the CDC states it is safe to do so.
  • Manikins should be at 3’ apart as per the AHA training memo from March 10th.

Our goal is to provide a safe environment for our staff and class participants. We will follow the latest recommendations and may modify these as the science changes.

Student Screening Procedure

COVID-19 Student Screening Procedures

As of 03.20.20

In an effort to reduce the risk of spreading the COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus, Emergency Medical Consultants will immediately begin screening all students for possible risk of spreading the COVID-19 Novel Coronavirus.

Below are the procedures and scripting for students before entering courses:

Questions to ask each student:

  1. Are you experiencing any fever, cough, or flu-like symptoms?a. If no, proceed to question 2.
    b. If yes, the instructor should respond, “At this time, we are asking that anyone that may be experiencing symptoms of respiratory infection to not attend courses. Please contact your primary care physician before you reschedule your appointment. Please call us back once you have received clearance, typically 14 days. We are happy to make your employer aware that you DID in fact, attempt to attend a course on this date. We hope you feel better.”
  2. Have you traveled to any country listed on the CDC’s Level 3 Travel Health Notice or have you traveled on a cruise ship in the last 14 days?a. If no, proceed to question 3.
    b. If yes, the instructor should respond, “At this time, we are asking that anyone that has traveled to the affected areas or on a cruise ship in the last 14 days to not attend courses. Please contact your primary care physician before you reschedule your appointment. Please call us back once you have received clearance, typically 14 days. We are happy to make your employer aware that you DID in fact, attempt to attend a course on this date. We hope you feel better.”
  3. Outside of an environment where you were wearing proper PPE, have you knowingly been exposed to someone diagnosed with active Covid-19 virus, or come in contact with anyone with known or suspected COVID-19?a. If the patient answered no on question 1, 2, or 3, they have cleared the screening process and should not be questioned further. They may attend the course.
    b. If yes, the instructor should respond, “At this time, we are asking that anyone that may have come in contact with anyone with known or suspected COVID-19 to not attend courses. Please contact your primary care physician before you reschedule your appointment. Please call us back once you have received clearance, typically 14 days. We are happy to make your employer aware that you DID in fact, attempt to attend a course on this date. We hope you feel better.”
