I have a close relative that currently works for superior and they have told me stories of the incompetence of most of the employees. As long as itís a transport only they are OK....if itís an emergency watch out chances are you will get a person that doesn't know their stuff. This is sad for the ones that do know what they are doing because they get grouped into superior has idiots working for them. One of the problems is they have management that are not medics, or have never worked the road. They come up with the most stupid policies. Dispatch is not much better, they will have a code 3 patient transported to not nearest hospital....but further...why because the patient wants to. This goes against all proto calls! For those at superior that know what you are doing.....GET OUT NOW. Before you get the permanent label as just another incompetent SUPERIOR employee.

I like how you uncredible your source is and the fact that you spelled "protocol" wrong. Do not judge a unless you have experienced incompetence first hand. Superior Ambulance is quite possibly the strictest employer I have ever worked for. A lot of the work is by the book and have seen more than enough instances of fellow employee's being fired on the spot for the slightest error. I resigned from my position almost a year ago, but will tell you first hand that this company does not play around.

i work for superior and it's not as bad as you think; we are NOT 911, we are people that do dangerous transfers and pick up things that could be a doctors appointment... but we provide a service with an eta of 30 mins
call us if you don't like 911

First off superior is part of a group of companies all owned by the same 1 person. Norcom is one of those companies which provides a privatized 911 call center. So calling 911 is moot if you live in the greater Dupage county area and wish not to use superior in any fashion. Secondly incompetence could be due to the fact they pay minimum wages or close to that and I being a firm believer you get what you pay for could shed some light on the subject of lawsuits. Also when you have enough money to self insure your company, whats a measly 100k to pay someone off when you're saving 1mil,2mil,3million or higher a year on insurance and wages.

I am a Superior employee. I'm not going to lie, we are a bunch of retards. However in our defense poor management is a lot of the reason, and yes we make $9.00 an hour and haven't had raises for 2 years now. Most of us have a family and are living a walfare due to low wages and expensive health insurance that doesn't cover much. Yes, our mangers will all the rejects of EMS, but I believe that's only because they don't what EMS is anymore. We get into filthy trucks everyday, we pray that it will start, and if we are lucky enough for it to start, we pray again that we won't be stuck in the middle lane of the freeway later that day. Superior tries to make it up to us by buying pool tables and tvs that we can't use until our shift is over and we're off the clock, but it's the thought right? So you remember next time you're making a difference and saving a life... 2 weeks later we'll be taking your patient back to the nursing home, who has now contracted MRSA and C-Diff, don't worry though ... we have 3 unpaid sick days a year and insurance we cant afford to use. So keep complaining about Superior employees ... think of it as beating on a bunch of retads.

what I find really sad is that this whole story starts out with I heard from a friend, yak are getting all stupid and making comments and accusations on a call you hear 3,4,& even 5th hand,like a Chinese phone call. Unless you are medic in great standing with the state & have never made a mistake or were actually present on this call with first hand knowledge, then shut up,take your pathetic mudslinginf somewhere else. BTW, if you are woo smart & knowledgeable about ems then you would know that you just broke at least 2 laws, 1 being HIPPA laws which States that you can not discuss ANY pet's info,that includes names, med history, & outcome of medical care... hope you have some $ laying around dimbshit!

I am a cuttent paramedic in the state of michigan and through training and schooling I've learned that no amount of training can prepare you for a true 911 emergency. Humanistic elements cause us to do amazing things as well as tragic mistakes. Although this is a perfect example of an avoidable mistake, we must realize that for us to lay a judgment on an ambulance company based on a single story. We need to recognize that the people employed at companies such as these do intend to deliever health care to those who are in need. For those of you who complain about such actions, what makes you better than them when there is a clear shortage of EMS personel, especially in the downtown detroit area. The only point to be made is that everybody makes mistakes, but the lessons learned from them are what truly count.

There's a test you need to pass to get hired as a EMT/ Medic. Also it's the school you went to that gave you the license to be a EMT or medic. Also orinentation is over a week mon - fri 9-5 and you spend 3 days riding with a crew. I don't know of any other private company that does that..?

Also patients choice of hospital is up to them. Unless its life, limb, or eye sight. and reason why some transport are far is due to the hospitals. For rehab, physcosis, surgery ect..

All dispatch is emts or medics that worked te street..

As a answer to this story! Well, I agree....
Superior Ambulance Company does not runs a lot of ALS calls... ALS crews runs BLS calls all the time, also company do Not pay a lot..... For the amount of k owl adage what medics have the $ are not adequate....which will lead to less and less if good medics at company.

Never never ever use Superior ambulance. Their staff is incompetent and they use predatory practices at the hospitals to do unnecessary transports to scam insurance companies. If the insurance does not cover their costs, they sick their lawyers on you. Drive yourself or take cab or something else but I would not get in their ambulance.
