This video is heartbreaking, the money is just too much. Ambulance costs, medical costs are legitimately crippling people. It’s so sad that he wants to stay so that he can go to work to provide for his family and avoid these absurdly expensive medical costs.
he may want to provide her presents but honestly thats way more selfish which scenario would have ruined her bday one without presents or one with a grandpa that just died a day or 2 ago and will have to live with remembering her grandpa died on her bday
This reminds me of my grandpa, he was an illegal immigrant so finding health care was really hard and he never wanted to even bother with health care. His only concern was his kids and grand kids. God bless that man.
Thank you America for allowing your citizens to be more afraid of hospital bills rather than life problems. Hope this guy is doing well, he seems like a good man just trying to support himself and his family
The reason why these people are so worried is because a cardiac arrest is a significant issue. There wasn't any trauma so it would've been a medical cardiac arrest which could be due to a variety of heart issues. America's poor health coverage just makes the place unbearable.
Right? Still, I can see why he did it. EMTs get a lot of people who refuse care without understanding just how bad their ailments are, and they probably get really angry because they feel like they let the patient down if they die.
Reminds me of my grandpa so much...he doesn't ever let us know when he is in pain and need to go to the hospital, but just keep working so he can buy us all gifts (all of us are working already)...he recently got hospitalized for something he's put up with for years...thank God he is okay now tho
+Semira also I mean I can talk to you about it considering I have to do it everyday just like you and I'm on call 24/7 incase of server emergencies, but sure look done on civilians.....really representing the military well oh and you get free medical if your in the military so who are you to talk about medical bills lmfao
At that time if he were seriously injured they aren't going to stop and consider that. If he couldn't were they supposed to just be like "Oh, of course, we'll let you go to possibly die later that night, how silly of us."
This man is salt of the earth a real man. Being shocked by his defibrillator over and over and he is only concerned about doing a job tomorrow and he wants to give a grand baby Birthday gifts. He is some kind of man. Unfortunately these are the men who drop dead of a heart attack.
Y'all are going to arrest him for what? i get that he's really not trying to go it makes sense but he know he'll probably be paying these bills for a while and it's upsetting that people would rather die than get help shows a problem.
Better then “free” healthcare where the lines are long and they determine if you get the life saving emergency operation or not. There’s a reason why people come to the US from cucknada for operations.
GOOFY ENTERTAINMENT BY RAYOH ! That's really only if you get surgery or have to stay at the hospital for at least a week. Just going to the Emergency Room only costs about $2 grand, or about $400 with insurance
Make education cheaper, make medical products cheaper, make housing cheaper, make food cheaper. You cant have it all. Especially in a country that thrives from capitalism. Someone's gotta get paid or taxes are gonna be 75% of our income to give those things for free when they aren't needed. You'll then be complaining that your phone bill, insurance and living expenses are to high.
That’s the reason many people don’t go and get the help they need, because it’ll financially cripple them. Here in the U.K. we don’t have this problem. We never have patients refusing to come with us because they cannot afford it.
I usually don't comment on anything but when people are so wrong.... It means electroc(k)ardiogrammm... It is a medical term, origin kardia which means heart in Greek. Medical terms come from Latin and Greek so why does everyone think he is an expert and comment bs. English is not even my native...
EKG and ECG are the exact same. There are two abbreviations for the word purely because of how the word breaks down in German, I believe. I myself am a former X-Ray technician and my wife's parents own a handful of urgent care clinics. In my time at the clinics I've heard it abbreviated both ways by several different physicians. I say EKG myself.
This is absurd! You can't force an alert oriented patient to go to the hospital. Yes you can place someone on a "EOD/baker act/etc." (goes by different names in each state) but that's only if they're suicidal or homicidal. Being a dummy and ignoring your dysfunctional defibrillator is not suicidal. Those paramedics were wrong. Someone could be having a STEMI but if they're alert and oriented you CANNOT force them to go against their will. That's why the police officer was like 'there's no reason to baker act him'.
If he’s intoxicated or his judgement is altered to the point where he can’t make rational decisions yes they can. Sometimes you have to do what you need to do to make sure your patient gets the correct care, even if that means finding loop holes in the system. And if you go against the paramedics and your family members suggestion to go to the hospital, that’s not a rational decision.
Patients A&O. Talking coherently in complete sentences with no reason to suspect he's altered or dangerous. Look him in the eye, give him medical advice, just explain you wanna check him out. All checks out, signed refusal and go. You can't and I'm surprised that places let you, but you also SHOULDN'T be able to force someone to a hospital. Unless under the influence, altered from whatever reason, or having any kind of mental disability.
RaGe Deluxe Just because someone is intoxicated does not mean they are unable to refuse care. If someone is mentally incapable and don’t answer your questions appropriately then that’s the only information that you need. Med legal can be a grey area but when someone alert and oriented is saying I don’t want to go to the hospital it makes it pretty black and white.
Squidward Tortillini EMT school teachers you nothing about that. It’s protocols set upon departments. Also if we truly believe that someone is mentally incapable, intoxicated, or having severe health issues and denying treatment we can get a court order for them going to the hospital and if the hospital doesn’t see anything they will be released but if they do then they must then enact on the issue on hand. I’m EMS we don’t want to do these things because the amount of paperwork that we have to do and these things can take hours upon hours doing. Every situation is different we are over worked and underpaid sincerely a paramedic
