Be Prepared in Case of Emergency

The most important thing to do is to remain on the phone and let the dispatcher hang up first. If the patient has any change in his or her condition, you can tell the dispatcher and he/she can immediately relay it to the ambulance crew en-route.

Make sure you are prepared with the following in the event of an emergency:

  • Provide the phone number you are calling from, in case the call is disconnected.
  • Have a precise set of directions written down by your home phone to tell the dispatcher exactly how to get to your location from the hospital.
  • Be prepared to tell the dispatcher the patient’s primary medical complaint when you call, such as chest pain or trouble breathing. This information helps the dispatcher determine if the situation is an emergency or nonemergency.
  • Have a written list of the patient’s medical history, current medications and dosages. Emergency personnel can obtain records from the Baxter Regional health information department, but this takes time and may not include recent medications.
