The other JOCO...and their approach to those plastic boards...

We put too many people on backboards...

I have said it before, as have others. There is even an EMS system out in Kansas quite a few EMS systems around the world that have taken a whole new approach to that whole plastic board torture routine spinal immobilization spinal motion restriction transporting people on hard plastic boards practice.

Maybe now people are finally re-evaluating the dogma long held belief that we have to put patients with curved spines on hard, flat surfaces.
