I was added to the June PPPP&C agenda to present my revised IO Policy. It was voted "approved" by the committee members in attendance. The only change that needed to be made was to add all ED Techs (EMT-B and Paramedics) under the definitaion "ED Techs" in the policy. (see final policy draft below)
