I thought the extent measurements were pixelated results with at least 10% ice coverage so includes holes. That's my understanding of it from what I read. Measuring different things would make sense. But the difference doesn't help bolster the case that "all the science agrees" when it obviously doesn't.

But when you find that their logic and science is wrong, and they are intentionally misleading the public----and you learn they are paid $80,000 to do so by an organization highly dependent on funding from the fossil fuel industry, it should infuriate the average person. In the same way that they trashed medical science and trotted out a bunch of pseudoscience to protect big tobacco (donors). That…

I see you've resorted to name-calling. Under normal rules of debate, I win, then? I cite SkepticalScience because the summaries are very good at citing the actual studies for the claims made so that the reader can look at the source. And they do a great job of outlining the arguments against those who deny climate change. And they try to keep it up to date as new ideas or challenges are put forth.…

Adams County to take part in pilot program

Adams County to take part in pilot program

1 year, 3 months ago by Denise Donley

The Adams County Ambulance & E.M.S. and the Adams County Health Department are in the E.M.S. Patient Navigator pilot program

The Adams County Ambulance & E.M.S. and the Adams County Health Department are one of three entities in the state chosen to participate in the E.M.S. Patient Navigator pilot program. 

The program is aimed at ensuring patients who call 9-1-1 frequently for chronic or non-medical emergency related matters get the right help for the circumstances. 

J. Paul Davis, EMS Chief, said the program will better assess the needs of patients and locate more appropriate and coordinate resources with community health care providers and social service agencies. 

“In order to help identify people who might slip through the cracks, Adams County paramedics and EMTs are going to be called upon to report and refer incidents to a patient navigator,” said Davis. “This gives us the opportunity to review the situation and determine if this is truly a 911 call for an emergency or is it a 911 call because that patient doesn’t have access to some other type of healthcare that is pertinent to the situation.”

Examples of those who would need a different type of healthcare rather ambulance care includes patients who get tangled up in their oxygen cord or those who don’t know which medication to take.

When a client is identified by paramedics and EMTs, the E.M.S. Navigator will assist and educate would-be ambulance patients in locating more appropriate resources. The navigator will coordinate with community health care providers and social service agencies to get the patient the help needed.

“The program will make sure the ambulances are available for true emergencies and to make sure that people aren’t slipping through the cracks,” said Davis. “We want to make sure that we’re not just putting a band-aid on the situation, but that we are providing the right help for the right circumstance.”

The E.M.S. Patient Navigator pilot program is funded by a grant from the Illinois Department of Transportation and administered by Southern Illinois University Centers for Rural Health.

Locally, the project will be administered by Adams County Ambulance & E.M.S. with the Health Department providing coordination. The E.M.S. Navigator is a registered nurse currently employed by the Health Department.

The program will be funded for a minimum of two years.
