Primarily, FPS was founded in order to alleviate the increasingly high case numbers experienced by FPs all over the country. While this continues to be our primary focus, we are dedicated to finding innovative solutions to accomplish that. By providing board certified FPs, Forensically-trained Pathologists' Assistants, experienced Autopsy Assistants, and certified ABMDIs, we can help with any stage of the Death Investigation Process. Most commonly, offices prefer to have longevity & decide to bring someone in for 1-2 weeks/month. However, some offices opt to have a contractor work as little as 1-2 days/month or to cover vacations/conferences as needed. We also provide:
CONSULTING / PROCESS IMPROVEMENT
While staffing is widely regarded as the biggest obstacle currently in Death Investigation, there are still multiple aspects that can improve or facilitate a more efficient work environment. FPS has been contracted to offer it's most experienced individuals, and take a deep look at the daily operations, management, and standard operating procedures of offices throughout the country. As national standards develop and improve, so should the way we incorporate those practices into our daily regimen. We believe in continuous development, and FPS uses a multi-disciplinary approach to accomplish that & offer solutions to our partners.
Throughout the years, we've spoken to many offices who are searching for cost-effective ways to provide their staff additional training. While not every county has the capability to send individuals to local/state/national conferences, they can benefit from having professionals come in & provide on-site training. For example, if your office has recently hired multiple new autopsy technicians, we can send you an experienced technician to educate/train them. This allows multiple individuals to receive the training, without the costs of sending staff elsewhere.
