Ada Paramedics honored by Heart Association

Ada County Paramedics was recently honored with the American Heart Association’s Mission: LifelineEMS Silver award. This award recognizes a high level of success in implementing improvement measures for patients who suffer from severe heart attacks, known as a STEMI (ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction). Ada County Paramedics treated 78 STEMI patients over the course of a year, 70 more than required for the award.

The company received this award for having demonstrated at least 75 percent compliance for each required achievement measure for the year, following protocols derived from the American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology, using the correct tools and training to rapidly identify STEMI and notifying the hospitals early to trigger response from awaiting hospital personnel.
