Depends, did they run an IV? Did they use any equipment on you? Typically in Northern WI it costs about $450 for a basic ride to the hospital, $650 to $850 if you need a param…edic unit.
The basic definition of the word ambulance is 'a vehcle to transport aid and care of a medicla nature and to provide transport for the sick and injured'.. The term ambulance …is used today is usually thought to describe a big van with blue lights on the roof but can range from that or to a responce car.

In America, on a ground vehicle ambulance, nurses are not required and almost never attend. Pretty much the only time you'll see a nurse in a standard ambulance, is if one of …the EMT's is training to become a nurse.. Medivac Flights (chopper or plane), however, almost always have at least one nurse on crew.. Other countries use different protocols and may dispatch doctors and/or nurses with the unit.
you kinow in Thailand we had a driver take us like 100 miles and it cost about $20 US dollars. Here, in Illinois (the poster child for everything a state can do wrong) we on…ce used an ambulance to transport my grandma about 10 miles and the dopes took her on a ride for 40 minutes and practically killed her. And charged us $300 for that little joy ride. Amubulance owners are doing what is euphemistically called "free enterprise" but it is in actuality HIGHWAY ROBBERY. It's an over-priced service that exploits the fact that people are in a vulnerable position.
Ambulance rides are free of charge.. NO they aren't. People are charged for the use of ambulance.
There are many reasons why individuals pursue a particular career. That being said, I would hope that one reason individuals pursue a career as a nurse would be that he/she ha…s a passion for what they do and recognize the benefit it brings others as well as themselves.
This depends on the type of ambulance and the area it is operating in. Ambulances are either basic life support (BLS) or advanced life support (ALS). BLS trucks have EMT-basic…s instead of paramedics. ALS trucks legally must have one paramedic on board, and either an emt-basic in a rural setting, or a second paramedic in a metropolitan area. However, it is all up to the agency staffing the ambulance.
An ambulance rise is not necessarily OSHA recordable, if for example, medical attention beyond first aid is not given during the ride, or if the ride is occasioned by somethin…g that is not work-related.
In New York
Depends on the agency and care provided. Some Agencies charge a flat rate for the care and then additional rates for mileage. For example, You want BLS transportation 10 miles… to the hospital. The agency will charge you $350 for the BLS care and $10 dollars per mile. Your total bill for the ride to the ambulance will be $450. Definitely an expensive taxi. Hope this helps. NYS EMS Provider
It is hard to answer that question. Almost every 15 seconds somewhere in the US there is an ambulance going out to rescue someone from an emergency. A patient could clinical…ly die (go into cardiac arrest) in the back of the ambulance, but they are not legally dead until they reach the emergency room where a physician can pronounce them dead. So it depends on your meaning. for clinical death, it is not that rare anymore to get pulses back with all the drugs and tools a paramedic has at their disposal. Nobody legally dies in the back of an ambulance.
