Why might a nurse ride in a ambulance?
Pretty sure they ride in an ambulance because they are needed. Doctors can't just ride in an ambulance when their patients are possibly dying, or in a coma.

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 )
Answer . Hospitals, Doctor's offices, some Ins. Companies to due bloodworks for Life Ins. policies.
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.

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 once used an ambulance to transport my grandma about 10 miles and the dopes took her on a ride for 40 minutes and practically k…illed 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. ( Full Answer )

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 has a passion for what they do and recognize the benefit it brings others as well as themselves.
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.

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-basics 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. ( Full Answer )

Do you think it would be fun to ride in an ambulance without being hurt but still have the full effect other than pain?
It may be a little fun however I don't think it would be good because you don't need it while many other people will and they will need it more than you do. If you really wanted to see how a ambulance works and things like that just ask them to when they have a minute at the hospital or something.
They don't want to arrive sweaty . The trip is too long . They need to carry more stuff that can be brought on a bike . They think the weather is bad . They don't feel safe riding in traffic

The question is purely academic. You cannot ride an emu. Though they are tall (1.6m to 2m in height), they weigh only 30-45kg, which is less than the weight of an average teenager or adult. They are not strong enough to hold an average human's weight.
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.
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.

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. Charity ambulance: special type of transport ambulance for the purpose of taking sick children or adults on trips/vacations away from hospitals, hospices or care homes where they are for long term care.

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 clinically die (go into cardiac arrest) in the back of the ambulance, but they are not legally dead until they reach the emergency ro…om 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. ( 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 )
