Improving air ambulance safety
from By Dorothy L. Tengler
The medical helicopter safety record is troubling. Although air ambulances are supposed to save lives, often the crew and patients find themselves in great danger. The rate of fatalities per 100,000 air ambulance employees over the past 10 years exceeds other dangerous professions such as logging or deep-sea fishing. According to many, the risk is unacceptable.
