EMS in Crime Scene: Role of Medical Emergency Teams in Forensic Cases addresses the different settings that occur in pre-hospital environments, along with the medical-forensic relevance surrounding evidence preservation. The book identifies the main difficulties in this subject to promote proper intervention. The main role of EMS will always be medical assistance, but it is also their job to ensure their safety, the safety of the victim and the protection of the local scene. This means of preserving evidence, even though it is an ancillary activity and is not meant to compromise care of the victim, is an important role of EMS. The objective of preserving where a crime has occurred is, from the outset, to keep the environment as unchanged as possible, that is, not to move and/or subtract objects from their original position (even if it is a firearm) and not to add elements that were not present at the scene, such as shoe trail marks, earth, hair strands, cigarette butts, etc. Presents how to identify and preserve a crime scene Covers how to avoid contaminating the victim or crime scene evidence Reviews how to document the facts in a way that protects both the victim and the medical emergency team

No two crime scenes are the same, and each scene presents a unique set of obstacles to overcome. While there is no one "right" way to handle every situation, the goal of collecting evidence while preserving its integrity remains the constant motivation of the crime scene investigator.
This special Instructor’s Edition can help you present better programs on the subject of EMS documentation. The patient care record your EMTs and paramedics leave at the hospital is your calling card. How good do you look? Oral reports need knowledgeable and effective delivery. Written reports also need completeness and accuracy. Written reports are a permanent patient medical record. They help with care continuity. The record of your personnel leave reflects on the professionalism of your organization. Patient care reports are the first place attorneys and regulatory agencies look when seeking to place liability. This training program helps you take steps to decrease your liability by teaching your employees how to write organized, professional reports. It also deals with special situations such as patient refusals, sudden death, crime scenes and child and elder abuse -- areas where your liability could increase even if you don’t transport a patient. This book breaks down the components of report giving and writing and provides instructors with a useful tool for training their personnel in proper written documentation and verbal reporting situations. It provides margin cues keyed to the text and helpful insights on presenting the program. Sample reports with analysis, useful for discussion groups, are provided.

Every action performed by a crime scene investigator has an underlying purpose: to both recover evidence and capture scene context. It is imperative that crime scene investigators must understand their mandate—not only as an essential function of their job but because they have the immense responsibility and duty to do so. Practice Crime Scene Processing and Investigation, Third Edition provides the essential tools for what crime scene investigators need to know, what they need to do, and how to do it. As professionals, any investigator’s master is the truth and only the truth. Professional ethics demands an absolute adherence to this mandate. When investigators can effectively seek, collect, and preserve information and evidence from the crime scene to the justice system—doing so without any agenda beyond seeking the truth— not only are they carrying out the essential function and duty of their job, it also increases the likelihood that the ultimate goal of true justice will be served.

Helping the EMT student become EMT basics.
Sergeant James Douglas and his partner are investigating the murder of a security guard at the Laverty Farm Equipment Company that occurred during an apparent robbery. As the investigation unfolds, it is apparent that the motive for his death is more than robbery. Soon, the detectives have reason to believe that other murders may be related to the same killer and this might only be the beginning. The investigation takes them to Cincinnati, Ohio where the murder of an honorable man occurs soon after they arrive. The murderer, now classified as a serial killer, is on a rampage. He has a knack for tracking and terrorizing his victims before he moves in for the kill. He is able to conceal himself and at first appears to be a crazed psychopath, but this monster has the cunning and strength of a wild animal. It is up to Sergeant Douglas to find out what has set this beast loose and how to bring him to justice.
