What does your local hospital have in their EMS lounge?

Do your local hospitals serve snacks, full meals...drinks?  Is the lounge in the ER or elsewhere in the hospital?  We are looking for some ideas about what you like or wish was in your EMS lounge?  We've already thrown out ideas like massage therapists, spa services etc. See More

"Our primary hospital has nothing in it, because there is no crew room to speak of. The most we get is a dirty room where they throw all our immobilization equipment when they remove the patient from them for us to pick up later. One of our other…"

"Shit I need to go work there, best we can get here is off brand soda and nasty bologna and cheese on white bread that evaporates in your mouth; and old bananas and junk food. "

" It is not just Medicare. There are many regulations concerning this. Considering the location of the person who posted the question, there has been much controversy for the hospitals in that area. Hospitals do need to be very careful.  "

"None of ours has a 'lounge' for EMS. However, three of the local EDs have drinks, and two of those have snacks. That's about it."

"Hospitals need to be careful. Medicare has a tendency to call these "kickbacks"."

"We don't have an EMS lounge at our hospital.  The EMT's hang out in the ambulance bay (which isn't pleasant; in the summer its hot, winter it's cold.) or in the Doctor's lounge if it is available.  As for…"

Yes, just had an 11 yr stint in the air ambulance biz with Air Methods... before that I spent 16 yrs in NYC after I left Dyna Med. I see your company provided consultant services for TransCare... I was hired by them as their first director of ops years ago and was thrown into the lions den after they acquired their first 13 companies. Small world! After 31 years in Fire/EMS, it was going to be RM, AMR or get out of the biz finally. A friend of mine is a senior director at Tenet corporate and he knew that I'm getting old and growing weary in the EMS industry and recommended that I get back into the hospital market. Otherwise, life's been good...have a seven year old son (started late!) with my second wife (much younger!) who of course was a paramedic(employee) turn ER Nurse (of course). Just Livin the EMS life!!! Hope you are doing great! We probably have crossed paths over the years many times and have worked with the same folks.
