Again I agree (scary)
I'm curious about who this "Independent Company" is so that I don't go there. And I sure hope they switch to another.

But it won't be the end if the family sues, which I hope they do.

Before my mom passed away last February, she had been transferred the same way and route a few times. I never once was concerned about her safety. And her only complaint was the bumpy road on HWY 2 right before you hit Duluth. But then that was fixed.

My question is even though the jail time would be suspended on conditions, if it wasn't and some one did have to do the jail time, who would do it? The driver, the ambulance director or the "Independent Company"?

The person in control of the vehicle would be, and I am sure that the DOT would find a way to fine them, including the State prosecutor.

So could Meds One then sue their "Independent Company"?
