Narcan Order Coming?

From an e-mail:
  • ...heads up, new order is in the works to get us all trained with Narcan and no more OD dupes to the ambos. We will administer and transport ourselves. Order is written and just going through the approval with CFD and CPD.

    And CFD is footing the bill for training and equiping us.
Any Waiver of Liability in the works? Supposedly, this is administered as a nasal spray. So what if the addict doesn't react? How many doses are we authorized to give?

What if the addict is so far gone, he ain't never coming back? Are we to pronounce them? Seems you need a paramedic for that.

What if he walks to your squad car for transport and goes down again, maybe this time a heart attack from the years of drug abuse. We're going to wait how longer for ambulance to arrive?

What if you walk him to the squad and he decides not to go? He's not in custody, so what's the liability if he walks off and dies later? He already ingested the drugs, so what's the PC to detain him?

Let's go full-on stupid - what if you don't get there fast enough for Rahm, the junkie dies and someone says you deliberately slow-rolled the response knowing it was "just an OD, just another junkie." Who's going to make that determination - the DOJ? We're risking our careers, livelihood and property for someone who purposefully, willingly puts poison in their bodies?

Even better, will an ISR be completed?

So many questions, so much liability.

Indianapolis went to this several years ago. It usually takes more than one dose as the heroin is more synthetic now or they also took Xanax. Its administered in a spray up the nose. The stuff the we carry rarely works anymore.

They need more ambulances per firehouse. 16 years ago I got EMT-BASIC cert. there were 90% medical calls, 7% fire and 3 % haz mat...WHy does a whole fire truck have to show up to help with one person ill? Cross train the fire people to all be emt-paramedic and put two ambos at each fire house. If there is a big fire.. dispatch an adjacent rig....There is enough manpower to do this in the cfd. Cpd needs the manpower...the cop has to handle every kind of bs....not medical. If we do medical we would need a guard unit in place to watch our backs while we work on patient. I would do it for a lot more money and voluntary.

Hmmm...

So much fuckery and progressive feel-goodery
being overwritten onto The Police hard-drive.

Kinda like that scene in Robocop when they
were scrolling through Murphy's O/S and were
amazed at the amount of bullshit that was
overwritten on his Police hard-drive rendering
him unable to take appropriate Police action.

Policemen have no damned business administering
Narcan... Mission creep that is fraught with peril.

A little darling of one of Rahm's backers or media
water carriers must've taken a bad ride on the white horse.

All of these new policies are being written to screw you over and get people hurt. There's too much to keep track of and remember. Make sure you sign out a taser, log on to the in car camera and record the start of tour message, sync the mics, remember to turn on your body camera every interaction, etc. And if you forget to do one of those things you get in trouble. No matter what you do, they'll find something to screw you on if they want to. Cops forget to do things unless they do them every day. Cops are gonna be second guessing themselves to make sure everything is working instead of taking action in a chaotic situation which could get somebody killed. They're putting all of these policies in place so they can eventually fry a few cops and then turn around and say to the public that they're disciplining those dirty ole cops especially now since the DOJ report came out. Anything to appease the reverends and ministers who in return get their people out to vote for them. Anybody coming on now has to wonder if its worth it, all for just a job so you can pay your bills. Its gonna be hard to avoid getting suspended from now on. Every time a cop gets suspended the city gets some of its money back and they're looking to cash in. And the FOP will do nothing at all to help out the members which proves that our lodge is being taken care of by the city to bark a little but not bite. Rant over.

If there is any truth to this, it is wrong on so many levels.

I typed a bunch of paragraphs, but deleted them. I just can't grasp any part of this, that doesn't dry fuck the cops on the street.

This isn't a cops job. 911 calls go to the cops or the ambulance, that's the call takers job.

I see this as a way for tiny dancer to start reducing CFD, the way he has strangled CPD.

I truly feel sorry for the way you are treated in this city. Let it be known, you are appreciated, and respected by many.

Not a cop.

Unless we are completely indemnified, you'd be a damn fool to even think about administering this shit to some bustout dope fiend.

And what about those of us that don't feel comfortable, even after being "trained", with being responsible for this? If I wanted to administer life-saving medicine to junkies I would've been a paramedic.

Seriously, I think FOP needs to get involved if this comes to fruition. I personally don't feel this should be mandatory training/responsibility for coppers, and that we should be able to opt out of participation.

I would base my argument on the fact that I am trained in CPR but I'd never dream of do mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on some ghetto motherfucker. Nor will I try to tourniquet a GSW. Same goes for CIT training. Sure the department may want to, or even mandate training, but a one day crash course doesn't certify me in dealing with something people go to school and study psychology and psychiatry for.

I am a police officer, not a paramedic and not a psychiatrist. It's bad enough that I already have to play the roll of marriage counselor, parent/disciplinarian, eviction crew, taxicab, animal control officer etcetera. I believe this would stand a legal challenge if it got to that point. Anybody versed in law and smarter than my dumbass have any input?

From an EMS provider stand point there's absolutely no reason in hell anyone but 2 paramedics on an ambulance should transport a narcotic OD. Except maybe if we can't get there fast enough and it's your family member and your down the street form the hospital. The intranasal narcan is very simple you just attach the nasial cone to the pre loaded syringe, then give half in one side of the nose and half in the other. But if it's the good stuff that might just bring the OD back to breathing on their own, or do nothing at all, and that's it it's just one time in each side of the nose, next up they need it through an IV. It can also make them fully awake and very violent, to the point we sedate them with versed, or need police assistance. Most of the time they vomit as well and have a huge risk of aspirating that vomit. And if they do fully come around they CAN NOT EVER refuse transport, multiple times this is why police are needed to put them under protected custody to get to the hospital, and this is the EMS medical directors policy. It is also policy anytime a medication is given, even if it is someone who just gets an nebulizer with albuterol for an asthma treatment there mush be a call to a hospital to get approval for the patient to refuse transport. As far as reports go it is Illinois Department of Public Health policy a patient care report must be completed if a drug is administered. So is having it and using it a good thing? Yea sure maybe it will save a few people and get a feel good story. But should CPD have anything to do with transportation? God no that's going to be the biggest law suit ever. It's like if you did CPR used an AED, saved the person and now had the policy of well he's awake now let's take him to the hospital

Sorry, you can train me until the cows come home but I will never administer anything to anyone who has not authorized it and signed a form releasing me of all liability. Im guessing that the affected person will not be in any condition to do that. The "good samaritan law" won't apply and I doubt the city is going to buy us all malpractice insurance. And yes, I know paramedics do it everyday without problems but thats the job they signed up for and were extensively trained for. The DOJ just said we weren't trained adequately for the job we did sign up for and now the brain trust that fucked that up wants us to take on a whole new job description?

Maybe certain districts can have a Narcan car on each watch. Some districts have so many ODs per day that you'll be running from call to call. Another over reaction to a non-police problem. Just because some suburbs do it, doesn't mean we should. Also another example of relieving everyone else of their responsibility, just like the tourniquet and IFAKs to treat gun shot victims. It's bullshut.

It's in the good sameritan act. Not that I want to spend my day saving junkies ventilated gangbangers, but we won't have much of an argument against this when it comes.

Same goes with CIT and any other b s a law enforcement officer shouldn't be doing. Why do the bean counters treat CPD like some small rural department? So, CFD is "footing" the bill. What does that mean? It's all comes out of the same city pocket. So CPD gets a lot more responsibility, that they aren't/wrent/won't be properly trained for. CFD, whose job it is and should be, gets a lot less. CPD and CFD continued to be paid the same and have the same pay scales, which is bullshit and always has been. Officers take on a shitload more possible legal ramifications from a cultures that already hates and despises them. Great idea! I'm all in!

My guess is that CFD complained to Rahm that they are spending too much time on these types of calls and that CPD can handle them since they are first on the scene anyway. CFD probably sold it to Rahm as a way to save precious CFD resources. I'd say call for CFD anyway. CPD are not trained paramedics, who knows what else the person is suffering from, heart attack, stroke, diabetic incident. The list goes on and on. I will add more after talking to medical professionals that I know.

They say there are no side effects. I predict 10 years from now we will see tv ads from law firms, similar to the mesothelioma and vaginal mesh ones that run on Fox 32: "if you've been given narcan, you may be entitled to a settlement."

I didn't sign up to have needles infected with HIV/HEP-C being fought over when the narcan suddenlu kicks in like rocket fuel. Ever hear how one reacts to narcan? Doctors and EMS strap them down before administering but they demand we risk all as usual just to say we fucked something up.

Another democrat waste of money on democrats.
If someone is willing to go out of their way to inject or snort an illegal substance, let the Good Lord save them. It's in the rules.
Oh yeah-yeah, sure-sure, we are all dedicated to save property and lives no matter what during the course of our duties.
From CVS Pharm: "...44,000 die from accidental overdose each year, most from opioids..including controlled substances and heroin..."
They're not talking about productive members of society, even though there are many decent people with addictions all over.
In this case the use of Narcan might do some good but there will be judging and assessing that could have consequences.

There was a recent suburban Dept. that came upon a vehicle crash where the hyped up driver was resuscitated with Narcan, he'll go on to drive another night under the influence again.
Its like the IPOK medical kits we were issued for officer safety being used on ghetto shooting victims.
Chicago has ambulances, let them do their job and assist when necessary.

In my opinion, CPD utilizing Naloxone is another Democrat vote saver that is intended to keep the south of the open border drug cartels operating.

Believe it or not.. as someone in the medical field and seen it first hand, some get violent after you ruin their high.

I've seen it before too. Now, if an officer ruins an addict's high and the addict starts fighting the cop and the cop has to use force to subdue the addict the cop will be sued by the addict who's life was just saved. Perfect for the drug addict. Life is saved and they'll get paid to go out and buy more drugs. Not good for the cop though. It comes down to a simple decision for the cop to make.

1/15, 708pm - They do wake up in a panic. Essentially the narcan is forcing open their arteries that are constricted from the dope. They wake up in a panic, usually over react, can become violent and typically don't like you. It's an easy nasal spray and usually the kits come with (2) sprays. Regardless though, any policy I've seen throughout the burbs, an ambulance is always dispatched regardless. They have to be transported afterward and depending on how much dope they took, they can fall right back into OD mode. The paramedics can at least do the IV narcan which helps a lot more. I've never heard of a policy where PD has to transport an OD victim.

The idea that we're able to be held liable for something going wrong while attempting to perform first aid is a huge myth in this dept, developed by coppers that don't want to touch some dirty bloody hype or shooting victim, All we're required to do is call an ambulance yes, but your not liable for anything if your trying to help. It's in the good sameritan act. Not that I want to spend my day saving junkies ventilated gangbangers, but we won't have much of an argument against this when it comes.

And what's the general order gonna say? Let's see what it says first. State law states shooting into a vehicle is permitted by POs for deadly force but CPD order says its prohibited when the vehicle is the only weapon being used as a threat.

They're detailed. That's how they get around opening bids. In theory, they can be sent back to their original units.. Also, the airports are 50/50, not 80/20. Put 9 people on management spots, you'd have to open 9 bid spots. Kinda sneaky, but it's allowed.

The Department can role this out, FOP can fight it and may win, but may also lose. You will be held responsible and in all likelihood will be sued. Even if it works the victim will find some other ailment to blame us for and if it doesn't work, then you were negligent. These departments in the burbs don't have the type of jobs or the volume of jobs we do, so they have the time to dispense narcan. This is a way for little suburban chiefs and politicians to try to show the communities they are trying to help. This is Rahm and special eds feelgood offering to the community.

This is getting rediculous. About if bean counters who were never the police making these kinds of decisions. Why are officers taking on more responsibility without being paid? Same goes with CIT and any other b s a law enforcement officer shouldn't be doing. Why do the bean counters treat CPD like some small rural department? So, CFD is "footing" the bill. What does that mean? It's all comes out of the same city pocket. So CPD gets a lot more responsibility, that they aren't/wrent/won't be properly trained for. CFD, whose job it is and should be, gets a lot less. CPD and CFD continued to be paid the same and have the same pay scales, which is bullshit and always has been. Officers take on a shitload more possible legal ramifications from a cultures that already hates and despises them. Great idea! I'm all in!
