What is a hospital emergency ambulance lane called?
If police sent a 17-year-old to the hospital by ambulance how do you dispute the ambulance charge and whose credit will be damaged if it is not paid?
You don't dispute the charge. You thank the officers for looking out for your child, regardless of whether or not you feel it was justified. It is unlikely there are grounds for dispute. The party who will be responsible for paying charges will be the parent(s) or legal guardian of the minor chil…d. What actions might be taken if the charges are not paid would be the decision of whomever operates the ambulance service. ( Full Answer )
What might be the consequences if a minor calls for emergency medical assistance because she believes her boyfriend has overdosed but he is fine when the ambulance arrives?
Answer . Neither should have any consequences to face, as the minor made the call in good faith and concern. Whether you are a minor or an adult, a 911 call made in good faith will not result in legal consequences or ethical ones either. An abuser of the system, however, could face charges of fi…ling a false 911 report, and then have consequences. The biggest hangup will be when the ambulance arrives, is the boyfriend an adult or is there someone over 18 present? If not, the ambulance may (depending on state and local statutes) be required to transport the boyfriend. Oh, and a person can look "fine" on arrival from an OD, but not be. If the person was called in as a suicidal, the boyfriend may be required to be taken for evaluation anyway. ( Full Answer )
That is going to depend upon how far they are from the hospital. Typically the crew will take 5-10 minutes trying to stabilize the patient before leaving the scene.
Can you be up for legal charges while driving an ambulance by blowing horn setting off a siren for passing someones house if not in route to a Emergency Call?
you are not supposed to use the siren unless it is an emergency, i dont know that they would make a big deal out of it if you were just doing it in front of one house unless there was a big deal made out of it.
Answer . The national average response time for a BLS ambulance is 10 min. Paramedics are 12-15 min.
Answer . Usually, no. Even while responding to emergencies, ambulances and other emergency vehicles are required to exercise "due regard" for other motorists' safety. If a collision does occur, the ambulance is usually expected to stop and another ambulance will be sent to the original emergen…cy. In very rare circumstances, if there is a minor collision involving minimal damage and no injuries (think: mirrors clipping as the ambulance passes), and/or if there are no other ambulances to respond to the original emergency, the ambulance may continue to the emergency, but usually only after the ambulance crew ensures there are no injuries. ( Full Answer )
Answer . Yes, with a few caveats. You may choose which hospital you want to go to as long as they are about the same distance away. If your preferred hospital is substantially farther away than the facility of similar care level, you may have to go to the closer of the two. If you do go to the mo…re distant hospital, insurance may not cover the trip, or make you pay the difference. ( Full Answer )
If the ambulance was using red lights and/or siren, you are obligated to yield the right-of-way. You are likely responsible for this collision.

The two titles are not at all the same, Paramedics receive much more training. Although that being said both positions are very important and the people in this line of work save lives everyday.
