ALS TRAINING POLICIES

The Medical Program Director (MPD) of Mason County requires that all paramedics and intermediate providers attend at least six Base Station Meetings (BSM) each year to maintain active protocols.

There are no exceptions for absence from any one of the required six Base Station Meetings unless the provider is a new employee.

The six meetings can be a collection of live attendance or BSM videos viewed.

Of the six base stations, one must be a practical/skill session with hands on participation.

Providers may get credit for practical/skill sessions(PALS, ACLS, NRC, PTHLS) taken outside the county or not at base station by providing a copy of their attendance or card to the MPD or program assistant.

Outside classes will be given credit for the month which that class was offered by Mason County and for which the card is valid. This does not necessarily count for the year the class was taken.

Providers may get credit for seminars/conferences attended.

In order to get credit the provider must provide a copy of the schedule with the number of hours for that topic along with a certificate of attendance for the conference, if possible.

OTEP credit for conference classes are COMPLETELY at MPD discretion and based upon topic of seminar class and how comparable to Mason County OTEP.

In order to get credit for base station by video, the provider must have proof he/she has viewed the video and taken corresponding quiz for that video when applicable.

All BSM videos will count as CME State requirements, should the provider choose to renew his/her credential by CME method.

New employees may be pro-rated a portion of BSMs as indicated by their hiring date at the discretion of the MPD.

There are 12 opportunities to receive Base Station meeting credit each year.

PRACTICE:

If a provider does not meet the annual expectation of six BSMs per year, the MPD will suspend the provider’s protocols, in conjunction with the provider’s employer and the DOH, for as many months as the provider has missed.

The process will be initiated through the MPD and begin in January of the following year.

The provider may remediate by fulfilling ALL of following requirements:

submit a letter of remediation to the MPD delineating a plan of recovery for their training. This letter MUST contain:

a statement of the provider’s understanding of the county policy regarding OTEP training

how the provider failed to meet those requirements to date

The provider’s plan for making up the deficient training.

watch the necessary number of BSM videos to make up the missing meetings

4. It is within the MPD’s discretion whether the letter requirements have been met satisfactorily.

5. The providers protocols will continue to be suspended until they complete their remediation plan or completed the number of months suspended, whichever comes first.

All ALS/ILS personnel using the OTEP method to recertify:

IF YOUR PRIMARY COUNTY IS MASON COUNTY: You need 24 OTEPs for the 3 year recert period.

With a minimum of 6 session per calendar year. One OTEP needs to be a live skill station.
