Lee County MEDSTAR employees earn credentials
Lee County Emergency Medical Services added three newly certified critical care paramedics to its MEDSTAR division this month through successfully passing an international exam.
The newly credentialed paramedics are:
Dominick Watts, Cape Coral
Steven Winters, Cape Coral
Jason Ausman, Fort Myers
The Board for Critical Care Transport Paramedic Certification is an international, non-profit organization responsible for the administration and development of the Flight Paramedic-Certified exam and the newly released Critical Care Paramedic-Certified exam. While both exams are similar in clinical content, the CCP-C exam was developed to certify critical care clinicians who generally practice outside of the air medical transport community in areas such as ground critical care transport or the in-hospital environment. The CCP-C is a challenging exam that requires dedication to study and commitment to critical care concepts and standards.
With the newly certified paramedics, MEDSTAR now has seven board certified flight and or critical care paramedics.
