Oxygen_Legal implications.

    Just wondering if someone can shed light on using oxygen in the workplace once trained staff are using it. (EMT/Paramedics).
    This workplace being a large entertainment complex.

    Not asking is it needed (As it would have been great to have on a number of recent occasions), Just looking at it from a legal standpoint and assuming insurance was in place.

    Oxygen is a medication, therefore you could well need to sign up to phecc as a cpg approved service provider and write a medication policy and get everyone who will be using it to sign up to the policy.

    Just let the ofa's deal with it and call 999 if needed, I'm sure most of people would have a normal spo2 on room air anyway!
