12 Va. Admin. Code § 5-31-1910 - Change of operational medical director

Current through Register Vol.. 38, No. 17, April 11, 2022

A. An OMD choosing to resign must provide the agency and the Office of EMS a minimum of 30 days written notice of intent. When possible, the OMD should assist the agency in securing a successor for this position.
B. An agency choosing to secure the services of another OMD must provide a minimum of 30 days advance written notice of intent to the current OMD and the Office of EMS.
C. When extenuating circumstances require an immediate change of an agency's OMD (e.g., death, critical illness, etc.), the Office of EMS must be notified by the OMD within one business day so that a qualified replacement may be approved. In the event that the OMD is not capable of making this notification, the EMS agency will be responsible for compliance with this requirement. Under these extenuating circumstances, the Office of EMS may authorize the EMS agency to continue its operations pending the approval of a permanent or temporary replacement OMD.
D. When temporary circumstances make an agency's OMD unavailable to serve for a period not expected to exceed one year (e.g., military commitment, unexpected clinical conflict, etc.), the OMD must notify the Office of EMS within 10 business days so that a qualified interim replacement may be approved. Any circumstances that make an agency's OMD unavailable to serve for a period expected to exceed one-year will require a change in the agency OMD as required by this section.
E. The Office of EMS may delay implementation of a change in an EMS agency's OMD pending the completion of any investigation of an unresolved conflict or possible violation of these regulations or the Code of Virginia.
