They were hit head on by a speeding wrong-way driver on a dark two-lane country road--how is that the fault of the EMT?
And the article states that it was the injured
respiratory therapist on board, not the RN (also injured), who attended to the patient after the crash. This wasn't a case of incompetence--this was a freak accident. EMT's and paramedics, at least in my area, are extremely professional, do a dangerous job, and do it well. Why criticise them?
