Ambulance Calls

Posted Oct 22 2010 9:01pm
Ambulance Calls:

Imagine the ambulance coming screaming down your street to find out it was to bust a boil, clip a hangnail or check on smelly body parts.........

*Do people really call the ambulance for flatulence?  Yes they do.
*Do people really call the ambulance for a cough?  Yes they do.
*Do people really call the ambulance because they are intoxicated?  Yes they do.
*Do people really call the ambulance for constipation?  Yes they do.
*Do people really call the ambulance for tobacco use disorder?  Well, I can only imagine what he called for but that was his diagnosis in the ER.  
****Shaking my head****
The average cost of an ambulance call is $700.00.  In one year, 30 people accounted for 2400 ambulance calls.  One of those 30 people called 243 times.
Why is this blatant abuse tolerated?  
People, please realize that while the ambulance is rushing to get you due to back pain you've had for a week, there are reall 911 emergencies out there that they AREN'T going to.
(Please excuse the frustration)........
