First the hosts (Jamie Davis, the Podmedic, and co-host Sam Bradley), along with Dr. Joe Holley from Paragon Medical Education Group look at the impact a relatively minor tropical depression named “Bonnie” had on the southern east coast of the U.S. recently.

Then, they address some audience questions about how to evaluate a medical mission group before the signing up and going on the trip. Also asked is how hospitals prepare for disasters and who pays for the overtime needed to do it right. Check out the whole episode for the answers.

Paragon Brings “The Experience”

Paragon Medical Education Group specializes in bringing what they call “The Experience” to jurisdictions around the country. They bring together police, fire, EMS, and hospital teams to train together and learn what to expect from each diverse group in the response team so that each knows what to expect from the other and how to back the other groups up.
