The Kansas Board of Emergency Medical Services and the Kansas Board of Pharmacy completed their annual inspection of Great Bend EMS, City Administrator Kendal Francis said, addressing the City Council Monday night.
“We were compliant with all of the regulations and statutes,” he said. He included a letter from James Reed, KBEMS operations and compliance manager.
“Congratulations on an outstanding inspection,” Reed wrote. On Sept. 30, the KBMS performed an inspection of Great Bend EMS. Inspections are conducted to ensure compliance with Kansas Administrative Regulations and Statutes.
The following areas are reviewed: Operational and medical protocol, equipment list, attendant roster, call schedule, daily record of ambulance responses, ambulances and equipment, garaging, and the service’s quality improvement program. “It is the opinion of the Board of Emergency Medical Services Inspector that your service did meet all minimum requirements as set forth by the Board,” the letter reads.
“I found your service to be well organized and compliant with all regulations and statutes,” Reed noted. “I commend you and your staff on the excellent job you have done.”
