How is it that an Ambulance company doesnt check or give T B testing to their employees and doesnt check to see if theyre up to date what can be done?
Every ambulance service should always be keeping up to date with TB testing of their employees. If they are not keeping up to date with testing, you should contact their medical director and notify them of such actions. (Or, lack thereof action.)
That is going to depend upon how far they are from the hospital. Typically the crew will take 5-10 minutes trying to stabilize the patient before leaving the scene.

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. Think of it as a "super-qualifed medical taxi". ( Full Answer )

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.

It's a caduceus, a staff with a snake around it ... the ancient sign of a medical person. Not to be confused with the staff of Mercury (messenger of the gods) who had a pair of snakes. Unfortunately the U S Army did mix them up, and confused almost everyone.
If a mailman police car fire truck and ambulance all come to a 4-way stop at the same time who has the right to go first?
The mail man because it is a federally ownedvehicle. Actually, not. The U.S. Mail service is not federally owned orfinanced. It is federally MANAGED, but relies on its own funds tooperate and interference with the mail is a federal offense, thoughnothing in the federal statutes state that it has t…he right of wayat any intersection beyond what the states have said. A few secondsyielding at an intersection isn't critical. There is no hard and fast rule as to which has right of way withregard to emergency conditions, so generally the likelihood is thatthe arrival at the intersection will dictate who had right of way(the first at the intersection does, or whoever is to the right, iftwo or more arrive at the same time) just like any other similarsituation. Of course, this is an entirely hypothetical situation which hasnever arisen in real life. Regardless of the "right of way", thedrivers will likely work it out among themselves should thesituation arise. ( Full Answer )
yes you do have to stop. you can get a ticket for not yeilding to an emergancy vehicle
The rule is different for all agencies, but where I work (in Pasco County Florida), we will allow 1 person to ride with the patient to the hospital (doesnt matter whether he/she is a relative or not) ALTHOUGH, we can refuse to allow ANYONE to ride if we feel that they may hinder patient care (e.g. b…eing too dramatic or upset over the situation) ( Full Answer )
They have mirrors in order to be able to see around them. The ambulance is a large emergency vehicle. It is often necessary that the proceed to the emergency room of the nearest hospital as quickly as they can in a safe manner. The mirrors allow them to merge in traffic and navigate through tight ar…eas in order to get to a patient or to get the patient to the hospital. ( Full Answer )
about 10 for urban, rural would be 30 plus minutes depending on how many kilometers from closest city
Jules Essex answer:. Seeing an ambulance is very unlucky unless you hold your breath or pinch your nose until you see a black or brown dog. Touch your toes Touch your nose Never go in one of those Until you see a dog. Agreed, it's unlucky. However, we used to touch our collars and say 'touc…h your collar never swallow (East end accent pronounced 'swaller'), never happen again' which kept us safe from whatever had happened to the person in the ambulance.

Ambulant is the Latin word for 'walk' or any other variations of the word walk like 'walking' or 'walked'.
The term ambulance comes from the Latin word ambulare, meaning to walk or move about which is a reference to early medical care where patients were moved by lifting or wheeling.
A water ambulance is a boat equipped to provide medical services and transportation just like a land based ambulance
According to U.S today, there is no real evidence of an average time. There is a study however of the 50 largest cities that says their average response time is 6 minutes, or around that. Hard to believe right?
All ambulance units in the Ambulance service I work for ( both Response Cars and Ambulances) Have Radio's and touchscreen computers mounted to the dashboard. We also have mobile phones which we use in emergencies should the radio or computer fail.

If someone dies in an ambulance does the EMT call time of death or does the doctor do that after they arrive at the hospital?
What I was taught in school is that NO you can not call time of death, we are considered "Medical Investigators" if you will, not Doctors. So even if you pull a body out of the river on a rescue mission, they are freezing, non responsive you work on them, you secure their airway as unconcious patien…ts can not, tube/bag ... ABC's and get them to the hospital. And then leave it at the door because you as an EMT/Medic did your best. ( Full Answer )
American hospitals had their ambulance services founded in the 1860s, and the first motor vechicular ambulance in 1906 (Found in my EMT book, Emergency Care and Transportation of the sick and injured, Edition 10, Chapter 36, pg. 1331).

why a ambulance has a siren a ambulance has a siren because if someones about to die from being stabed and the ambulance is caught in traffic the person will die so a siren will create a sound that the cars in front can hear they'll move out the way so the ambulance can get to the person fast
We need ambulances so they can take sick people or hurt people to the hospital quicker. They have a loud siren that warns everyone that someone is hurt or sick. When you see them passing by or blowing the horn """STOP""" and let them get the sick or hurt people to the hospital.
That depends on what type of ambulance you are talking about. Emergency Ambulance: most common type which provide care to people with an illness or injury. It can be road-going van, boat, helicopter, or fixed-wing aircraft also known as air ambulance. Patient transport ambulance: a vehicle in which …is used for transporting patients to, from or between different places for medical treatment such as hospital or dialysis for any non-urgent care. Response unit: this is also known as a fly-car and is used to reach an acutely ill or injured patient quickly so that they may give on site medical care. This type of ambulance however does not have the ability to transport patients. Response units must be backed up by an emergency ambulance. Response units can be anything from a standard car, modified van, motorcycle, bicycle, quads or horses.

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 )

So a driver in front of the ambulance can read the word in his/her rear view mirror. Write the word ambulance on a piece of paper and write the word ambulance backwards on the same piece of paper. Hold the paper up to a mirror and you will see that the backwards word is now the right way and the r…ight way word is now backwards ( 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 )
