The Bureau of EMS and Trauma Systems has requested we share a change that occurred regarding reporting for Ketamine and Fentanyl. Previously, a quarterly report was required. This is no longer the requirement.
Ketamine and Fentanyl reports are to be included within your semi-annual report.
Here is the link to the new form: https://www.health.ny.gov/forms/doh-3848.pdf
Please note! Semi-annual reports are sent to both the Bureau of Narcotics Enforcement and Bureau of EMS and Trauma Systems (information is included on page 2 of the form above)
Lastly, PCRs are not submitted with the semi-annual reports. Please retain PCRs in-house only.
