The service team now includes multiple ambulances, specialized equipment, Paramedics, and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT). Our Paramedics and EMT’s work together to bring you immediate, top quality, coordinated emergency care—and our personnel have distinct abilities:
Paramedic – Our Paramedics are trained in advanced life support and qualified, under the direction of a physician, to perform certain skilled procedures that are usually performed only in a hospital’s emergency department.
EMT – Sanilac EMTs are trained in basic life support and qualified to perform procedures such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), administration of oxygen, splinting of fractured limbs and removal of victims from motor vehicle accidents
McKenzie Emergency Care Department physicians and Sanilac EMS Staff work as a team from the moment EMS contacts the emergency department from the ambulance until the patient is treated at the hospital.
McKenzie’s skilled Emergency Care physicians provide medical control and oversight of patient care both in the ambulance and as care continues in the McKenzie Emergency Care Department.
