Paramedic Negligence Explained

Ambulance crew are vital in saving the lives of many thousands of people in the UK, and without their dedication, skill and expertise, many people involved in accidents would never survive the journey to an Accident and Emergency department. But, as with any role where patient lives are at stake, the pressure of getting to the scene of an accident with a few minutes, and making on-the-spot judgements regarding treatment can leave many paramedics exhausted and unable to perform to their full potential. This in turn can have a detrimental impact upon the standard of care provided to patients – occasionally with life-threatening consequences.

A Huge Percent of Claims Against Paramedics Are made For Delays In Response Time.

Approximately 75% of all claims against ambulance paramedics are made for delays in responding to an emergency call, or attending to patients at the scene of an accident within an acceptable time period. The first fifteen minutes after an accident are often crucial when lives are at stake, therefore ambulance crews must make every effort to arrive at the scene early in order to administer life-saving treatment. Claims against ambulance personnel are also made for lifting patients inappropriately, failure to carry out emergency CPR immediately, and wrongful diagnosis of injuries leading to delays in appropriate treatment. In some cases slow response time can be the difference between life and death or serious injury.
