Editorial: New ambulance drop-off rule flawed

from Winnepeg Sun

The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority says paramedics will no longer stay with patients longer than 45 minutes after dropping them off at hospital emergency rooms. The move is supposed to help reduce wait times for patients arriving by ambulance by re-focussing efforts on getting them into treatment faster. With no new staff or resources to expedite treatment for those patients, it seems more like wishful-thinking than a well thought-out plan to improve patient flow in busy ERs. more
