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.
there shouldn't be any reason that an elderly person cannot go by ambulance. with a dnr order care providers cannot ressucitate him but they cant reffuse care of him. ambulances are also alot bumpier than a normal car so its not always best for someone to ride in an ambulance expecially if they have… broken bones. but they cannot refuse to take them in the ambulance if that is what they want to be taken by.

A paramedic you retard. ------------------------------ EDIT: The person who wrote this isn't only rude, s/he's also not correct.

Ambulances are commonly staffed in two person crews. The type of licensure these people have depend on the type of ambulance they are operating in. There are two different types of ambulances: Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS). A BLS truck is staffed with at least one EMT-Bas…ic or sometimes, an EMT-Advanced. The other crew member is either another EMT-B, EMT-A, or an Medical First Responder (MFR). A BLS truck is equipped to deal with most emergencies but will not have all the capabilities of an ALS truck. ALS trucks are staffed with at least one EMT-Paramedic, and either an EMT-B, EMT-A, or another EMT-P. These trucks and crew are trained in advanced methods such as cardiology and pharmacology and are able to do things like EKGs, start IVs and administer drugs, and intubate. An ambulance will always have at least an EMT-Basic, and most ambulances are ALS, meaning they have at least one Paramedic at all times. (MORE)

When a death is expected and with agreement of the person'sphysician, the body can be transported by an undertaker. The sameis true if a professional nurse is in attendance with a patient whois expected to die AND with the physician's agreement. However, ifa person dies unexpectedly at home, typical…ly an ambulance iscalled. If a person dies unexpectedly AND under suspiciouscircumstances OR known malicious causes, such as gunshot orstabbing, the body is under the police and coroner's control; thecoroner transports the body after completing an initial forensicexamination. Lastly, the biggest reason a deceased person istransported by ambulance even without vital signs is because theymust be officially prounced dead by a physician who submits a deathcertificate; the person is then called DOA, "Dead on Arrival", eventhough the person died at home minutes to hours before an ambulancecame. Persons with terminal illness SHOULD discuss their finalwishes with their physician and seek agreement that the physicianwill sign the death certificate without transport to the E.R. Thissaves the family the ambulance bill, E.R and E.R. physicians'bills, and permits the undertaker to take charge of the bodydirectly from the person's home. Note: State Laws may vary. (MORE)
