Celebrating EMS Week

Mahaska Health Partnership Celebrates EMS Week

Mahaska Health Partnership is celebrating Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Week, May 19-25.

EMS Week aims to bring together local communities and medical personnel to promote safety, and honor those who dedicate their lives to provide lifesaving services on the “front-lines” of medical care. All day, every day MHP’s EMS staff is ready to respond at a moment’s notice to any situation requiring medical assistance.

“Everyday our EMS crew has the responsibility of responding to emergency situations quickly to perform high quality, lifesaving care,” said MHP Emergency Services Director Andrea Hagist. “They work closely with other first responders, fire, police and sheriff deputies, to perform a vital public service.”

When you call 911, the dispatcher, located in the Mahaska County Law Center, will collect information that will help determine what services need to be sent to help you. The dispatcher will then send for appropriate medical help. A first responder or police officer may arrive first, followed by paramedics to provide immediate intervention for your medical needs.

“If you’ve ever had to call 911, you know the value of emergency medical services,” Hagist said. “I am very proud of MHP’s EMS team and all of the pride they take in their work.”

To further benefit the community, Hagist said MHP is a designated Level III Trauma Center. This means when serious, life-threatening injuries occur, MHP has a trauma response team which must be immediately ready upon a patient’s arrival to assess, resuscitate, stabilize and either treat or transfer the patient.

“Our trauma care begins with the arrival of our highly-trained paramedics at the scene and continues on with the arrival of the patient in our emergency department,” Hagist said. “MHP has two trauma surgeons, Dr. Timothy Breon and Dr. Paul Riggs, who are available on-call, in the event of a traumatic injury in our county.”

According to Hagist, MHP’s Emergency Department is staffed around the clock with dedicated emergency physicians, nurses, and paramedics trained in trauma care. Additionally, the staff from Surgical Services, Anesthesia, Radiology, Laboratory as well as Respiratory Therapists are integral to MHP’s trauma team.
