General Regular Season Practice EAP Procedural Overview
Radio or cellular communication will be established and confirmed between team medical personnel (and on-site EMS when appropriate) with the specifically designated verbal calls and hand signals called out above as a means of alternate communication. In the event of injury, the medical person closest to the athlete will make initial contact with the athlete, gain control of the injury scene, and, if appropriate, communicate to the remaining medical staff that a player is down by verbally broadcasting . When appropriate the call and the player’s location will be broadcast via two-way radio and/or cell phone to all appropriate medical team personnel. The next two medical persons to arrive will complete the medical team’s Critical Care Triangle (CCT)™. The remaining medical team members (and EMS, if on-scene) will position themselves near their respective emergency response equipment with a clear line of sight to receive all hand signals coming from the CCT™. CCT™ personnel, led by the individual at the A-position, will complete an initial assessment to determine the extent of injury. If CCT™ personnel do not require any additional help to manage the injured athlete, the A-Man will instruct the B-Man to signal a toward the remaining medical staff and broadcast on the radio/cell phone. If additional help from team medical personnel only is required by CCT™, the A-Man will instruct the B-Man to signal a to other medical team members. All medical personnel will repeat the given hand signal back to the CCT™ to confirm receipt of and broadcast of the communication.
Should EMS be required, the designated EMS Escort is specifically responsible for communicating all hand signals directly to on-site EMS or activating EMS when EMS is on-call. The EMS Escort and Head of Security will ensure that all EMS access points are clear, unobstructed, and readily accessible. In all injury scenarios, all medical personnel involved will conspire to determine appropriate care and safe handling measures. If the Lead Physician is not on scene, the Head Athletic Trainer will communicate all appropriate information to the Lead Physician upon completion of all critical care tasks. The Lead Physician will communicate all appropriate injury information to the the team Administrative Liaison who will communicate all appropriate information to team officials, player personnel representatives, and family.
The designated Medical Team Facilitator will oversee proper choreography of all facets of the emergency action plan and account for completion of all critical care task directives given by the medical team in accordance with local regulations and best practice standards.
In a non-life-threatening injury requiring the assistance of on-site EMS, the A-Man will instruct the B-Man to broadcast on the radio and cell phones, and give the hand signal. The EMS Escort will repeat the hand signal to EMS who will stand by for further communication regarding specific EMS aid desired by the medical team. After receiving communications, the Head of Security will provide for scene security and ensure that all evacuation points are and remain clear, unobstructed, and readily accessible. After communicating the proper hand signal, the EMS Escort will proceed to the injury scene to be briefed by the CCT™ regarding specific EMS aid desired. Upon receiving directives from the CCT™, the EMS Escort will proceed to the EMS Rendezvous Location to communicate needs to EMS and escort EMS to the injury scene.
When an injury is life-threatening, the A-Man will instruct the B-Man to broadcast on the radio and cell phones, and give the hand signal. Members of the CCT™ will then begin appropriate care while the remaining members of the medial team advance all emergency response equipment to the scene and prepare to support the CCT™. The Head of Security will provide for scene security and ensure that all evacuation points are and remain clear, unobstructed, and readily accessible. The EMS Escort will proceed to the EMS rendezvous location to facilitate arrival of EMS to the injury scene. If on-site EMS service is BLS only, the life-threatening verbal/radio call will result in an immediate EMS call for ALS support.
When an injury requires the assistance of on-call EMS, the A-Man will instruct the B-Man to broadcast the appropriate radio call and back-up hand signal. The remaining medical team personnel will advance all appropriate equipment to the injury scene and prepare to support the CCT™. The EMS Escort will activate EMS and stand ready to communicate information between the CCT™ and dispatch. The Head of Security will provide for scene security and ensure that all evacuation points are and remain clear, unobstructed, and readily accessible. When directed to do so by dispatch, the EMS Escort will proceed to the EMS rendezvous location to facilitate arrival of EMS to the injury scene.
