Paramedic protocol to change under Manitoba healthcare overhaul

from Metro News

Winnipeg paramedics will no longer transport patients to the closest emergency room, as part of the latest healthcare system overhaul. Previously, paramedics transported patients to a hospital based on where they lived—in most cases their local or district hospital. But now, patients will be transported based on medical need. The new protocol will not affect how the public accesses services, said Ryan Sneath, assistant chief of paramedic operations with the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS). But patients "will be going to a centre that can more appropriately deal with their medical needs and or deal with their medical need in a more timely fashion." more
