EMT Basic Refresher: Patient Scenario #7
By Tim Sheehan
Learners follow an EMT response to a shopping mall where a teenage girl is choking on food. In this interactive object, learners examine response procedures, resources, and medications, and determine what actions the EMTs should take.
Learners read definitions of terms related to legal, insurance, and advocacy issues regarding the elderly. At the end of the activity, learners test their knowledge in three matching exercises. Some of the programs and groups discussed are Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, long-term care insurance, OBRA, SSI, and CWAG.
