What does EMS stand for?

Emergency medical services

EMS is a health care acronym for a service that offers medical assistance outside the hospital. It’s specifically designed to help those patients who have injuries or illnesses that stop them from getting to the hospital on their own.

This service is often referred to as an ambulance or paramedic service. Its primary goal is to give immediate medical care to individuals who need it and can’t transport themselves due to their physical condition.
