CEO Update
Interact!

Abbe Mostowy, our PECC Coordinator, recently planned and attended an Interact! course. I want to thank currents instructors, Todd Reisner, Tim Richardson, Brian Wilcox, Phil Wilson, Wendy Jacobson, along with future instructors Bryan Swift and Alex Austin for taking the time out of their weekend to attend and learn new tools to enhance adult teaching. The course was held at our Training Center on June 28, 29 & 30, 2019 and was presented by Kyle Bates of First Few Moments, and Jim Radcliffe of Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute, this course taught our instructors new tools to change and enhance the delivery of EMS education. Throughout this course, students participated in creating an Interactive Learning Case (ILC), which are used to supplement lecturing and get the students involved via active learning. We also were given the opportunity to use iSimulate, which is a form of high fidelity training and conducted several ILC activities over the weekend.
Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner Meeting
STHCS staff attended a SAFE (Sexual Assault Forensic Examiner) meeting that was held Tuesday at UPMC Chautauqua WCA in Jamestown. This multi-disciplinary meeting occurred to discuss the most recent sexual assault cases and work on quality assurance and quality improvement.  
 
We're proud to provide treatment and support to survivors of sexual assault across Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Allegany counties. I'd like to thank our SAFE providers at UPMC Chautauqua WCA, Olean General Hospital and Jones Memorial Hospital for providing confidential and compassionate care to all sexual assault providers.
EMS Skills
Over the last couple of weeks, Alicia has been working diligently with our EMS providers to complete the requirement for annual didactic and clinical skills credentialing to demonstrate competence with a WREMAC-approved preceptor. This requirement ensures that EMS providers maintain skills to provide care in emergencies safely. I am happy to report 100% compliance by agencies in Allegany, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua Counties by the June 30 deadline. I want to thank all of the agencies for working with us to compile and submit all of the required paperwork and for all of the work they do to ensure high-quality prehospital care is provided in the community.
