Many states are rapidly moving to pass legislation that could affect the compliance of your AED program. Questions that you should ask yourself include the following: • Do you know how to qualify for Good Samaritan protection in your state? • Do you have an AED response plan in place that meets your state’s requirements? • Do you have the proper medical direction or oversight needed to have an AED program? • Has your AED program been approved by your local EMS agency?
En-Pro monitors legislation issues so that your program maintains its compliance. Monitoring these issues and ensuring ongoing regulatory and legal compliance can be burdensome, so En-Pro’s Total Management Solution takes on this burden. Your Account Manager will personally research any federal, state, city and county laws that may affect the compliance of your AED program.
En-Pro can inform you: • How many people you may be required to have trained on site • If you need to store your AED in an alarmed cabinet • How many signs you may need to place in and around your facility and whether you should store your AED next to a telephone or not.
After researching the legislation in your area, your account manager will submit any necessary notifications or applications on your behalf as required by your local law. Should you use your AED, we will ensure the event is reported to your overseeing physician and reviewed as well as submitted to any necessary EMS agencies in your area.
As you finalize your plan, it is advisable to involve your corporate counsel or attorney as well as they should be kept apprised of the program to better prepare them should there be a cardiac arrest event. For more information on En-Pro AED Management, Click Here.
