This is being discussed in this thread in the Pre-Hospital forum:http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?t=729600 While the majority of the award was for the EMS service and paramedic ($10 million judgement against them), the physicians and hospitals involved settled for $1.5 million. Here's the article: I'm curious what other ED docs would do: 1. Would you have transferred this patient? 2. Does the medical care provided violate EMTALA? 3. Does the medical care provided by the ED physician and OB meet standard of care? 4. Does the medical care provided by the paramedic meet standard of care?
