CSW news sources say that during the 10 p.m. Thursday night newscast on KCTV-5- an investigative report said to be hosted by reporter Dana Wright is going to uncover a KC-MO Fire department EMS screw-up.
The fire department successfully fought to take over the ambulance/paramedic EMS service from M.A.S.T. last year- but continue to come under criticism for ambulance response times and lack of resolving M.A.S.T. employee pension issues.
The screw up?
It's said a EMS crew transported a patient to a Kansas City hospital that had been dead for up to 45 minutes while under that crew's supposive "care."
We wait with great interest Ms. Wright's investigative report.
In case like I you had to go to bed before the 10 o'clock news Thursday night- The KANSAS CITY STAR covers this story too (The STAR is "news partners" with KCTV-5 BTW).
It read to me like somebody on that EMS crew screwed-up BIG time....
