Add an Event

When creating or editing a run record, you can record what happened during the incident by adding events to the run record. You can review events already recorded by referring to the table in the Events section or the Sequence Chart.

Events include response times, such as when the EMS crew was dispatched to the scene or when contact was made with the patient. Events can also include any treatments, assessments, or procedures given to the patient, such as vitals or medication administrations.

Generally, time events only contain an Event Log section. Medical events tend to contain three sections: Event Log, Event Detail, and Authorization.

Note: Some events may contain different sections and fields than the ones described in this guide. This list contains only common sections and fields to provide a general guide for entering events.

In TripTix Windows, common events appear as buttons at the top of the Events page. You can add other events as needed.

When you add an event, it appears in the events table. You can review the table to see all of the events recorded for an incident. To sort the table by a column, click the column header. Click the column header again to invert the order. To edit any event in the table, click the event's corresponding Edit link. To delete an event, click the event's corresponding Delete link.

See the following related to managing specific events:
