Under-Qualified Paramedic Errors

Doctor talking to nurseParamedics and EMTs are highly qualified health care professionals, and they do great work within the realm in which they are assigned. When it comes to triage in an emergency room, however, not all paramedics are fit for the task. By allowing an under-qualified paramedic or EMT to perform triage procedures within an emergency room, a hospital is widening its margin of error.

This step is often taken as a money-saving measure. In reality, nonpublic aid hospitals are not hurting for money. In fact, these institutions are wholly supported by insurance and pharmaceutical companies, two of the richest industries in the world. At the outset, a hospital and its staff should be more concerned about your well-being and your fast recovery.

There are very specific and simple measures in place that, if followed correctly, would eliminate these unnecessary, costly, life-threatening errors.
