Re: “Danehy

Tom,
Just a quick note on the part about the car crash in front of Northwest Hospital. I am a paramedic with Southwest Ambulance, though I wasn't a part of that accident. In the Tucson area EMS providers operate under SAEMS (Southeastern Arizona EMS) protocols. In the field we have a bit of discretion and leeway, however there are certain standards we must meet. If you look at
http://www.saems.net/protocols/protocols20…
You'll see what criteria go into determining where a patient will go in the event of trauma.
It makes little sense to transport a patient to a hospital that does not have a specialist for the patient's condition. If we just bring a patient to the closest hospital all the time then we will be guaranteeing a later ambulance transport to the appropriate hospital at a later time. Increasing the costs and delaying definitive care for the patient. I'd be happy to discuss this with you anytime over a cup of coffee. d_tanstaafl@yahoo.com
