Physicians and Paramedics

Council wishes to remind physicians that Ambulance New Brunswick has a policy regarding physicians assisting at emergencies after paramedics have arrived.  It is a policy of Ambulance New Brunswick that paramedics follow their established protocols, as well as instructions they receive from their distant supervisors.  If a physician attending the scene wishes to take charge of the patient care, they are expected to agree to accept and acknowledge such responsibility fully and attend with the patient until arrival at hospital.
