    Paramedics Fight Over Patient

    http://kstp.com/article/stories/S426283.shtml?cat=1

    This is a most bizarre story. A patient with a broken back was loaded into an ambulance by the first responder paramedic unit. Another paramedic unit responded and demanded the patient, even tried to physically remove him from the first ambulance. Police were called. The policewoman was married to the second responder paramedic and arrested the first. Meanwhile, the poor patient laid there. It was all about money.

    Well...isn't that the way things go now? Highest bidder? LOL If I were the patient...I would divorce her if I had that option...it is difficult to tell. If I were not related..I would sue those selfish people! How DARE they?!

    What is the world coming too when people who chose jobs to help others cannot do their jobs properly anymore. It makes it so hard to trust anyone these days, a patient is waiting for critical care which could be life threatening and these so called professionals are putting themselves first. Unbelievable.

    What the hell is wrong with these people? I can't believe the officer (wife) was disciplined for her actions and then shortly after PROMOTED.

    im shocked that no true disciplinary actions were taken against these people.


    even from the perspective of the heads of the paramedics and police: THESE PEOPLE ARE CLEARLY LAWSUITS WAITING TO HAPPEN !!! (And they're lucky not to have a med-mal case against them as it is.)

    Certainly. Here you can wait up to twenty minutes for an ambulance. Some have waited way longer. Then when they get the patient the ambulance breaks down. There was a woman in Philly about a year ago died in that exact situation. We'd love having two ambulances showing up and fighting over us. It is crazy though.

    Wheweee This happened approximately 5 miles from my place. I was on vacation when I heard about it.

    I have lots of connections to the Lakeview hospital staff. LOTS!!!!!
    Lakeview isn't speaking.... they normally don't. The ambulance (Lakeview) sits in Somerset Wi at the fire station.....I had never heard that they had a boundry line. hmmmmm Apparently many on hospital staff never knew that either. Even if avvident victim was taken to Lakeview hospital it would of been further away then the Osceola hospital. So it makes no sense why Lakeview went there.

    This is not the first incident they have had either with paramedics.

    Also for as far as the Deputy goes...St Croix County REALLY needs to clean house. Simply pathetic to say the least.

    Will see if I can find out more INSIDE scoop!

    Golfmom,
    There isn't any News available on this that I could find in ANY local newspapers it happened in February & just on KSTP News, thats what we're seeing from Trino's post.

    We only have a weekly Newspaper its called the New Richmond News. Just dropped the Stillwater Gazette & Courier newspaper off over at my sons house. Will have them look in the morning to see if anything is in it.
