An EMS provider is able to work as an employee in a hospital or other health care setting, and the job description and expectations are set by the employee's supervisor or employer. In this situation, the EMS provider may perform any assigned job duties, including critical care responses. However, the employee may NOT use his or her license or title as an EMS provider while performing these duties, even though the training he or she has received may be beneficial or even required qualifications for the employment position.
The EMT scope of practice (OAR Chapter 847, Division 035) does not limit or otherwise affect the individual’s employment or job description except that the individual may not use his or her title or licensure as an EMS provider.
