Adressing COVID-19 Response
Durring the inital outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, BEMS had a irregular schedule. While we are still vigilant about any outbreaks, we are pleased to note that we have maintained a 24/7 on call schedule while classes are in session for the past year and a half. We hope to maintain this for the next year (2023-2024). Please email [email protected] with any questions, and [email protected] if you are interested in joining our team.
The Duties of BEMS are threefold:
- To stabilize and package critical, unstable, or potentially unstable patients (as defined by New York State BLS Protocols) for transport by ambulance.
- To render emergency aid to stable patients (as defined by New York State BLS Protocols) who need prompt hospital care, and arrange transport to an appropriate care facility.
- To render minor interim aid to patients who refuse transport during the hours when Bard Student Health Services is closed.
