Event Medical SolutionsWelcome to the web site of Event Medical Solutions (EMS), one of Australia's leading providers of event medical staff EMS is an ISO 9001:2008 accredited company.
These days, when running an event, you need to be able to limit your risks and liabilities, particularly with First Aid and Medical coverage. Just having someone about with a first aid certificate and first aid kit simply won't cut it.
As an event organiser, you need to ask the following questions of any first aid or medical provider you may choose to use to cover your events.
1. Do you hold medical and public liability insurance?
2. Do you hold work cover insurance for all your staff?
3. Are you accredited to provide stand by medical services at events by the Victorian Government or any other state government health department?
4. Are you licensed to use and hold restricted pain relief by the relevant state government health department?
If you get a no to any of these questions, you have to ask exactly what you are getting for your money. As these providers can do no more for a sick or injured patron than a member of the public with a Level 3 Workplace First Aid Certificate.
If the company in question says they are using qualified registered nurses, you must be aware that with changes to nurses national registration that came into affect 1st July 2010, nurses can no longer treat outside of a hospital or healthcare environment (community health organisation) above that of a level 2 first aider. They cannot even give panadol or any other over the counter medications without explicit instructions in writing from a medical practitioner.
