Information Management
Objectives
By the end of this session you should be able to:
• Populate all the required information on a
CFRR/ACR/PTR/PCR in accordance with
PHECC completion guidelines.
• Request a unique incident call number
(INCO)for transporting a patient in a Red
Cross vehicle.
Which Report do you use?
• A Cardiac First Responder Report (CFRR) is used if you
have attended a Cardiac arrest as part of a CFR in the
community group.
• An Ambulatory Care Report (ACR) is used for the general
treatment and discharge of a patient back to an event, that
the Irish Red Cross is covering.
• A Patient Transport Report (PTR) is used for the Inter facility
transport of a patient that has no interventions.
• A Patient Care Report (PCR) is used if a patient is to be
transported to an Emergency Department, there may also be
an ACR completed but a PCR must also be completed for
the transport.
Purpose of PCR/ACR/CFRR
• Clinical
– Recording pre-hospital care interventions and
medications administered is an essential clinical
responsibility of pre-hospital emergency care
practitioners.
– Documents the events preceding and possible
hospital admission of the patient (ref PCR).
Purpose of PCR/ACR/CFRR
• Legal
– Patient Care Report’s identify the care that
has been given to a patient.
– Properly completed it will give protection
and be an essential aid if called as a
witness in court.
Purpose of
PCR/PTR/ACR/CFRR
Organisation Information
– Activity related information can assist in future
planning and development.
– May be used for Public Health monitoring and to
provide information for research into new skills,
services, equipment and other resources required
in the future.
– Assist in the development of both service and
individual training plans.
Purpose of PCR/ACR/CFRR
Inaccurate documentation is potentially
damaging to patients, the IRC (Service
Provider) and the standing of the prehospital emergency care practitioner.
