Tennessee Emergency Medical Services for Children
Tennessee Emergency Medical Services for Children Foundation was established in 2005 to reduce child and youth disability and death due to illness and injury. The grant requested in this application will be used for the purchase of 24 EZ/IO drills and training the 83 paramedics for five ambulance services and 15 RNs and 5 MDs at a nonprofit hospital in the Baptist Healing Trust region. It also includes salary support and mileage for executive director. 75% of the five EMS training officers and nurse educator that stated they were uncomfortable with taking care of children in the initial "pre-test" will state "more comfortable or comfortable" on the posttest competency examination during the first "Train the Trainer" by month three of the grant cycle. 100% of the five EMS training officers and nurse educator will correctly demonstrate the correct placement of an EZ/IO in a patient care simulator model (mannequin) at the completion of training and by the third month of the grant cycle. This will be repeated in each of the five ambulance services and one hospital.
