this!

several EMS agencies down here are known for flying un necessary victims to the hospital.

some base it on " mechanism of injury " and some base it purely on what they think. scared , woo woo, whatever.

Chit,
that spot is 60 seconds from my neighborhood entrance off of Telge.
I went for a cruise about 7:30 last night and had to turn around at the Spring Cypress light back onto Telge. The water was coming up and no sign was yet erected.

He was wearing a club jacket similar to a dead rider's from a previous accident last night on Hufsmith Kohrville Road and 249 about 3 miles East of first location. Riders could have been together at some point.

Things must have changed. Waay way back maybe fifteen years ago I was working at Memorial Woodlands Hospital and got to talking with a LifeFlight crew. They told me flat out the EMTs on scene need to be relatively certain of survival in order for them to dispatch. While living in Florida, my wife worked as a dispatcher for 911, along with two of her brothers being an EMT and firefighter respectively and they all confirmed the same thing. LifeFlight is a private entity. They want to get paid, and dead people are generally negligent when it comes to their bills.

when we call for life flight paying is NOT even considered, the patients need for immediate care above the level of local bandaid stations is the ONLY criteria. so please keep your silly assed ignorant opinion to yourself

I worked with Lifeflight for 5 years at Hermann as a trauma surgeon. This is incorrect information.

I'm not so sure about this^^^^^^way back in 1986 i had a nasty accident(Passenger in a car) multiple injuries and broken bones really to many to list, anyway i was in and out of consciousness, well they wanted to LifeFlight me to a trauma center for just a small percentage at living, well they would'nt take me up because my left foot was barely attatched, multiple compound fractures, literally only some muscles and skin holding it together.They had to have my ankle worked on here locally (Spring, Woodlands area) before they would transport me to trauma center all the while according to my folks, Doctors told my dad that they did'nt expect me to survive my other injuries. wel they patched my ankle,sewed it up and put it in a cast, and told my folks that the other injuries were too extensive and they would not be able to handle them there that lifeFlight would transport me to Methodist in houston, before the copter got there my parents were given a warning that i only had about 20% chance of surviving......................................... .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ...............Sorry I did'nt mean to take over this thread, I'm really sorry what happened to those folks. They, and their familys will be in my prayers.
