The Application You Need

Everyone agrees on the benefit of providing rehab for firefighters engaged in firefighting and strenuous training. However, agreeing with it and putting it into practice sometimes are two different things. Never before has there been a software application designed specifically for tracking firefighter rehab, built to be consistent with the guidelines set in the NFPA 1584 Standard. RehabPro provides a simple solution to fit into it’s client departments’ policy procedure, and practices. We start with an easy to see interface that begins a timer when checked into rehab. This is consistent with rehab accountability, which is often overlooked. The time after check in provides the rehab manager with an accurate time of rest before first set of vitals are taken. The vitals are entered and then repeated after a period of time. The vital signs are computed in the Return to Action (RTA) ® Algorithm and will alert the rehab manager when someone is flagged to not return to work. All vital information is uploaded into the users individual profile, which is protected information and only able to be accessed by the individual member. The department is able to run statistics on the rehab history, however the program ensures that only data which guarantees anonymity is available. Building this program speaks to us and our core values of working toward firefighter safety.

FEATURES

RehabPro is a full fledged solution. We take the health of firefighters very seriously and have developed this program to be inclusive of all key metrics during the rehab process. We use these data points and run a “Return to Work” algorithm to help determine a members fitness for returning to assignment on the fire or training. Below is just a partial list of features.

  • CLEAN AND INTUITIVE DESIGN

    Like all of our other products, a ton of focus was placed on an intuitive interface. We want members to be able to record vital data without having to think about too many drop down boxes, or other difficult methods. And like our other programs, data entry into RehabPro is actually easier than writing.

  • SCHEDULE SYNC

    RehabPro will sync with FireRoster, or several other third party schedules to provide an accurate list for the rehab process. When Engine 1 shows in rehab, the personnel information will already be there, so you can get to recording data and not spend time trying to populate the computer with member information.

  • REHAB TIMERS

    RehabPro has timers built into each resource and person who is cycled through Rehab. In accordance with NFPA 1854, members reporting to rehab have a 10 minute timer before their first set of vitals need to be recorded. Then a second timer for when they need re-checked. This ensures the rehab process is followed according to best practices of vital sign monitoring.

  • INTAKE RECORDS

    Along with vital signs during rehab, RehabPro provides a spot for recording the intake of water and nourishment during the rehab time. Items, and their nutritional values, can be pre-loaded into RehabPro, so selecting them adds the specific item and values to the members record.

  • RETURN TO WORK® ALGORITHM

    Our robust rehab solution includes the opportunity for the department to configure vital sign ranges, and other key metrics to determine the fitness for your member to return to assignments. This is inclusive of signs and symptoms mentioned by the member, as well as consecutive vital sign checks. This also allows a member to record baseline vitals to compare to incident vitals to help detect abnormalities.

  • REPORTING

    RehabPro collects a ton of data during rehab events. This data is uploaded to the web and is archived for the department, and the members to access. Privacy protected data is only available to the individual, however some private info can be scrubbed for the department to be able to run rehab reports.

  • EXPOSURE REPORTS

    With the growing understanding of just how toxic smoke exposures are, RehabPro will automatically create an exposure report with scene data if triggered. This cuts down the effort that a member has to put in to record the toxic exposure. And more importantly, that members exposure reports are all contained in one area if they need them for health reasons.

  • WEB PORTAL

    The web portal is where all the information is uploaded at the conclusion of a rehab event. This is where a member can also go in and view their data, including creating or editing exposure reports. Supervisors will see exposure reports that need witnessed and approved to file, to maintain the integrity of the reporting system. A full back end system to make sure your data is protected and available.

NFPA 1584: Standard on the Rehabilitation Process for Members During Emergency Operations and Training Exercises

The NFPA standard lines out the responsibilities of the fire department or district in providing rehabilitation for our working firefighters, during emergencies and training. Many firefighters die every year due to heart related incidents, often after the fire. This standard is designed to help identify those potential issues and prevent firefighter death or injury based on exertion.

NFPA 1584 states that checking vital signs in rehab is necessary.

NFPA 1584 states that accountability must be maintained in rehab.

The Goals of Firefighter Rehab

  • To evaluate firefighters for potential illness or injury related to their activities during emergencies and training
  • To provide recovery from fatigue, fluid loss, calorie loss, and dangerous changes in their body due to exertion and exposure to toxic environments
  • To provide initial stabilization for treatable problems
  • To provide for immediate transport to the closest medical facility when warranted
