Release of Providers

Provider Clearance Process

Current ALS providers that are unreleased should contact their agencies for information on the release process.  Part of this process will be obtaining evaluations from released providers in good standing.  Copies of calls sheets along with evaluation forms will be turned into the Prehosptial Program for review by your Operating Medical Director.

Enhanced Release Points

The “ALS Preceptor Evaluation Form” is the guideline for awarding points. Preceptors should write comments as applicable.

·         Not every area will have points awarded on every call. Preceptors should write NA when points are not awarded.

·         The Jr. Enhanced technician should be present when the preceptor fills out the evaluation form. This will allow the call to be critiqued and learning maximized. Once the evaluation tool is complete, the Jr. Enhanced will keep it, a copy of the call sheet and airway forms when applicable.

·         All forms should be turned in to one of the Prehospital Coordinators. If airway points are the only missing points, contact the Prehospital Coordinators to discuss your release.
