The LifeFlight Ground Transport AEMT is an integral part of a comprehensive community-based EMS system, designed to provide both high-acuity urgent interfacility transports to a higher-level care and scheduled non-urgent transport of patients from VUMC hospitals to post-acute care facilities or home. LifeFlight Ground EMS also responds to requests for mutual aid to support any community 911 or hospital system during times of natural disaster, mass casualty, or other extreme circumstances. Each LifeFlight Ground transport base is specifically aligned in communities requiring direct support of VUMC hospitals or partnering facilities; however, the entire program responds to requests across a multi-state region.
The AEMT is responsible for assessment, treatment, and transport of all types of patients and conditions, and must be able to provide the level of care required to match the patient's needs (ALS, BLS or Specialty Care). The AEMT must initiate and or adapt patient care plans according to scope of practice requirements and LifeFlight approved treatment protocols and medical direction. The AEMT is responsible for continuously reassessing and adjusting care as conditions change with the goal of always optimizing outcomes. The AEMT is expected to always deliver exceptional compassion, professionalism, patient care, and customer service. Effective communications and close collaboration with EMS team members, hospital staff, communicators, and other key stake holders is essential.
The AEMT will communicate with all medical personnel and facilities' staff in a respectful manner while obtaining instructions or feedback for transport and hand-off. The AEMT will communicate clearly and concisely via radio to relay critical and time sensitive patient information to receiving facilities. The AEMT will complete all required documentation appropriately and in a timely manner. The AEMT will always operate an emergency vehicle and equipment in a safe and effective manner. The AEMT will work closely with their teammates to check, restock, inventory and clean emergency vehicles and supplies as to stay ready for a timely response. The AEMT will stay in good standing with state and institutional requirements.
