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 )

Ambulance service is just that; a service. Usually a privatecompany, providing a service (showing up and quickly getting you toa hospital when you call 911). They don't get paid by the hospitalor the "ambulance fairy", so generally when you are transported byambulance, you get a bill from them as yo…u would any otherbusiness. Many times insurance covers the cost, and if someone hasno insurance, you get a bill for the cost of the driver, themedical staff, insurance etc... the costs of emergencytransportation.

A medical biller and coder may have a year or two of education inorder to do this job. There are several aspects to this job and anexcellent grasp of anatomy and medical terminology will be vital.
I am speaking from personal experience. I took a medical billing course 2 years ago and I made a 3.75 GPA. It was not really hard. It requires you to analyze everything. It was a little tough for me to find different codes at times. You know, don't think of it as being hard. I realized during my cou…rse that I had more brain in me than I thought! I had to take an Accounting course and I was horrified...I meant HORRIFIED! I passed with an A. Don't limit yourself by creating an obstacle. The only thing I did not like is that most places want you to have 2+ years experience adn that can be a little tough unless you know a physician or something like that. What I would say is just do a little research on the job market for a medical biller. Besides that, if you decide to take the class, good luck and remember my information, I will help as much as I can! ( Full Answer )

Ambulance attendant is an old name for what is now known as an EMT or paramedic. In today's ambulances there are two people in each vehicle, supplemented by additional persons from the fire department in the case of a critical transport. In the case where two people involved, there is a driver and a…n attendant. The attendant, who is either an EMT or paramedic, is the one who sits in the ambulance with the patient until they arrived at a hospital. Ambulance drivers, who are often also EMT or paramedics, are going to be charged with driving the ambulance. If the driver is an EMT or paramedic he will take that role once he arrives at the pickup site or the hospital. ( Full Answer )

It depends on where you are in the world. In the US, most ambulances sirens have 2 or 3 settings....a long, slowly ascending and descending Whooo sound, a short rapidly ascending and descending warble tone, and sometimes a 3rd, higher, louder, phazer sound (my favorite to get attention of complace…nt drivers). Rarely , US rigs will have a European, up/down, British, DA/da/DA/da/DA tone. We have 1 rig at our department with the rare European setting. I love to use that setting through intersections here in the US just to mess with people, because most Americans have never heard that tone, except in movies. Ambulances in the US also have either a genuine air powered horn (awesome), and/or an electronic simulated air horn sound (lame). If you pay attention, before long you will able to tell the difference between police, ambulance, fire engines, and personally owned emergency response sirens just by the subtle sounds of each siren. The loudest, best siren is the air powered siren on the Fire Engines. They are controlled by a foot button located on the floor of both the driver and passenger/officer seat of the engine, an air pump, and a big, loud, steel speaker horn. They are easily the loudest siren available. Some police cars in the US have a "Rumbler Siren" that bottoms out at a subsonic level to send shock waves into the ground and surrounding areas, so that even if you have a crazy loud stereo cranked up in your car, you will feel the police siren in your bones....pretty cool. Ambulance sirens are usually between 100 and 200 watts of powered sound, and about half of the drivers on the road are completely oblivious to both lights and sirens until you are really close. When you see emergency lights behind you with a siren in America, pull to the RIGHT and stop. They will always pass you on the left in the US. If it a cop, you will notice blue lights. It is very rare for any other emergency vehicles to employ blue lights in their ensemble...and usually illegal. If an unmarked police car attempts to pull you over, call 911 and verify the identity of the unmarked car before pulling over, or drive to the local PD if it is close. Although illegal, it is not hard hard to obtain emergency lights in the US, and is a tool used by criminals to pull over victims. Rare, but it happens. ( Full Answer )

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. ( Full Answer )
