Clinic pearl of the week:  When you need to send a patient to ER, have the MA call 911 whenever possible. If you are stuck in a situation and have to do it yourself, here are the steps that need to be followed. Please call 9-911, let the EMS operator know not only the floor but also the side (I street or Penn Ave). Please have the RN assess the patient while waiting. Also notify the following people: the POD so that they can direct them the right way, the MA taking care of the patient, and the lobby staff (extension 3367) so that they can direct the EMS staff appropriately
