Objectives By the end of this session you should be able to: Populate all the required information on a CFRR/ACR/PTR/PCR in accordance with PHECC completion guidelines. Request a unique incident call number (INCO)for transporting a patient in a Red Cross vehicle.
Which Report do you use? A Cardiac First Responder Report (CFRR) is used if you have attended a Cardiac arrest as part of a CFR in the community group. An Ambulatory Care Report (ACR) is used for the general treatment and discharge of a patient back to an event, that the Irish Red Cross is covering. A Patient Transport Report (PTR) is used for the Inter facility transport of a patient that has no interventions. A Patient Care Report (PCR) is used if a patient is to be transported to an Emergency Department, there may also be an ACR completed but a PCR must also be completed for the transport.
Purpose of PCR/ACR/CFRR Clinical –Recording pre-hospital care interventions and medications administered is an essential clinical responsibility of pre-hospital emergency care practitioners. –Documents the events preceding and possible hospital admission of the patient (ref PCR).
Purpose of PCR/ACR/CFRR Legal –Patient Care Report’s identify the care that has been given to a patient. –Properly completed it will give protection and be an essential aid if called as a witness in court.
Purpose of PCR/PTR/ACR/CFRR Organisation Information –Activity related information can assist in future planning and development. –May be used for Public Health monitoring and to provide information for research into new skills, services, equipment and other resources required in the future. –Assist in the development of both service and individual training plans.
Purpose of PCR/ACR/CFRR Inaccurate documentation is potentially damaging to patients, the IRC (Service Provider) and the standing of the pre- hospital emergency care practitioner.
OHCAR The Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest Register is a National Register that will assist in better understanding of the causes and interventions in cardiac arrest. Please ensure if you have attended a Cardiac Arrest that the OHCAR section on the back of the PCR is completed with the most information that can be obtained
