EMR (Emergency Medical Responder)

Operations Management · Sylvan Lake, Alberta
Department Operations Management
Employment Type AMTS-Casual
Minimum Experience Entry-level

Associated Medical Transport Service (AMTS) is currently interviewing ACoP Registered EMR's for placement in the Sylvan Lake station and reports directly to the Operations Supervisor or Manager. The successful candidate(s) will primarily be responsible for providing non-ambulance transport support and will participate in a New Hire Orientation before entering the field. This includes a mentorship component with experienced staff members which is valuable for our providers to better adapt to the environments we operate in.


 


Description:


AMTS staff attendants provide care and transportation for non-emergent patients during routine transport between medical facilities. They may be required to assist patients who are mobility challenged and require the use of walkers, wheelchair or are stretcher bound. They complete and submit required documentation including patient care reports.


Emergency medical responders are responsible for the cleanliness of the transfer vans, equipment and ambulance bays. They also maintain the stock of supplies and equipment available in the transport units.


Emergency medical responders may work in highly stressful emergency situations. Their work is performed before a patient reaches a hospital, between health-care facilities and before patients are seen by Emergency Department staff. Shift schedules may include a combination of day, evening, night, weekend and holiday shifts, as well as on-call duty.


Emergency medical responders play an important role as members of the Associated Medical Transport Service inter-professional health care team. In the course of their work, they collaborate with other emergency medical personnel, physicians, nurses and other health professionals.


Emergency medical responders spend a lot of time standing, reaching, walking, crouching and bending during their shifts. They are required to lift and transport patients and equipment. At times, they may be in awkward positions while providing assessment and care to ill and injured people. Emergency medical responders may be exposed to chemicals, bodily fluids, needle sticks, moving traffic, weather conditions, and other potential safety risks while on the job.


 


Required Qualifications:


Completion of an accredited Emergency Medical Responder or Primary Care Paramedic program.


Active registration with Alberta College of Paramedics (ACP) as an Emergency Medical Responder.


Current Basic Cardiac Life Support - Healthcare Provider (BCLS-HCP).


Must hold a valid Class 4 Alberta Operator's license with an abstract indicating no serious traffic safety violations - abstract will be requested


Completion of the Functional Abilities Recruitment Evaluation (F.A.R.E.) test taken no more than six months prior to the application date.


Must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination
