Prehospital care is provided at the patient’s location

The emergency response centre will dispatch an EMS unit and its personnel prepare to encounter the patient and render prehospital care.

Prehospital care includes urgent care given to an acutely ill and injured patient, and, if necessary, their transportation to a health care unit.

The EMS unit carries a diverse set of medical equipment that enables it to provide high-quality healthcare despite the out-of-hospital setting. The emergency care providers primarily work in teams of two, and when on an assignment, one emergency nurse examines and treats the patient while the other asks questions and logs important medical information in the emergency medical care report. If the situation so requires, both emergency nurses may participate in the patient’s treatment.
