Community paramedicine comes to Wells, BC

 

Seniors in the Wells area living with chronic conditions now have the support of a community paramedic visiting them in their homes on a regular basis.  This service is part of BC Emergency Health Services’ (BCEHS) new community paramedicine program being delivered to rural and remote communities throughout BC.

 

Well’s community paramedic is Eileen Hayles, who has been a BCEHS paramedic for the past five years, and recently relocated to the Cariboo area.

 

She is now providing community paramedic services 20 hours a week during two 10-hour shifts.  While carrying out her duties as a community paramedic, she visits patients in a specially-marked community paramedicine vehicle.

 

Patients are referred by their physician or a member of the local health care team, who are also responsible for determining the patient’s care plan.  Services provided by the community paramedic include checking blood pressure, helping with diabetic care, identifying fall hazards in the home, medication self-management assessments, post-injury evaluation, assisting with respiratory and cardiovascular conditions.
