What people do not understand here is that if the EMT woman said to take the med and it was out of date and something bad happened because of the out of date med, she would be liable, lose her job and be sued.
But since she followed best practices and said not to take the medication she is covered. Doesnt matter whether the patient dies or not, she followed procedure. That is why no firemen saved drowning man last year, they were not certified for water, they cannot help or if they do and something goes wrong they lose their jobs. The death does not matter.
This is a regulatory crazy world.
This is where our suit happy legal system has taken us.
Let’s hope that city decided to certify their firemen for water. I guess 2 life preservers and a rope are too much weight for a 150,000 dollar fire engine!
