A lack of accountability is one of the quickest ways to endanger patient safety, provider safety, and the trust that community members have for public safety.  

Discipline ensures that each member knows and understands their responsibilities in their role, and the consequences for not carrying out those responsibilities. 

EMS1 is seeking to identify how EMS agencies are disciplining members who fail to follow policies and protocols, and how providers perceive their organization’s disciplinary measures. 

Please take a moment to complete the survey and share it with your peers. The results will be explored in an upcoming special coverage series. 

Thank you for your participation.
