Mid Georgia Ambulance recognizes medics for saving lives | Health
On Tuesday, March 12 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., Mid Georgia Ambulance (MGA) recognized 27 Paramedics, EMTs and Dispatchers, from MGA divisions across the state, for demonstrating excellence in patient care.
At Tuesday’s Save Awards Luncheon, sixteen medics received MGA Excellence in the Field Awards for demonstrating outstanding knowledge and skill in delivering patient care and three medics were recognized with distinguished honors from the state office of EMS.
MGA also recognized eight medics with the highest honor in EMS, Pre- Hospital Save Awards. Several Columbus Firefighters were also recognized by MGA, as vital partners in patient care.
While medics save lives every day, Pre-Hospital Save Awards are only given in situations fitting a strict requirement for clinical outcomes. Medics qualify for this distinguished award in instances where the crew not only resuscitates the patient in the field, but the patient is also later released from the hospital free of physical and neurological deficit.
The MGA team members who were honored have displayed excellence in caring for their patients in the field by assessing each patient quickly and providing necessary care and treatment to save each patient’s life.
The Pre-Hospital Save Awards luncheon was held at the MGA Columbus Operations Center, 2222 2nd Ave. Columbus, GA.
