Could someone clear up the different 10-37 codes for me? At what point does the unit decide which code to use?
For example, sometimes on the radio I hear a unit report that firefighters are in the ambulance assisting with CPR en route to the hospital- this would make it a code 2, presumably. But if the patient then dies en route or after arrival, what code would be transmitted?
Also, what exactly is a code 4? I read that it is for when the unit has 'no patient contact,' but would that not make it a 10-91 instead? Is this the definition or is it for minor injuries that don't require EMS to transport the patient?
Again, thanks in advance!
