I'm pretty sure this hasn't been posted, yet..I looked so if there is a thread somewhere, I am sorry! Please let me know. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,398721,00.html "ATLANTA — Authorities say a suburban Atlanta woman died while waiting for an ambulance that a 911 operator sent to the wrong address." ..... As an operator and a former first responder...I feel very badly for this person's family...and the operator (they will never get over it). But, do I think they should have been fired? Not if it was an honest mistake...and wasn't negligence, etc. Not defending a mistake...but we're all human. I have a job that can mean life or death to someone as well (but not 911)....and we all try our very, very best. I feel for the patient and the op. in this. If the op misheard the address...it happens. You try to get everything you can from the person (cell phones are the most difficult...and that's what it sounds like this patient was on if they were using tower 911 triangulation). She may have not been able to talk much with a pulmonary embolism. It's a shame all around and I pray nightly that I'm quick enough and do the right things. I'm praying for this patient, her family, and also the operator.
