Auxiliary Medical Directives
Additional (“Auxiliary”) skills may be delegated through use of the Auxiliary Medical Directives. Delegation of Auxiliary Medical Directives by a RBH Medical Director to paramedics is optional and may be introduced after consultation and mutual agreement between the RBH and the certified ambulance service that employs the paramedic. Some PCP and ACP Medical Directives contain the phrase, “(if available and authorized)”. This phrase qualifies the skill or procedure as optional (i.e. auxiliary) even if included in PCP or ACP Medical Directives.
