There are alot of stories about a paramedic being left behind after this accident. Want people to know that it is not true.No one was left behind and there were no serious injuries.The people who are saying these things are not telling the whole truth.
Ok your wrong

Then why is she off work and why did they cancel the help? Also why did to fireman who work part time for EMS have to pick up a truck and take her to the hospital? Get you facts straight ...thanks

She is a cousin of mine I've talked to her she was hurt and was left behind cause the jessamine county EMS supervisor is a damn moron and plays favorites with the EMT's that kiss ass!!!! She is one of the hardest working EMT's that this county has and in the end she will have her justice!!!!

So you are going to wait for an ambulance, that are on runs. Someone is going to get the pt. out of the back. leave the crew member in the back. There was always an ems crew member there with her. her MEDIC fiance. and she was so badly injured she needed an ambulance from WOODFORD CO. to take her to a hospital, two feet away. Come on.. she has a bruised leg, and a bump on the head... waaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

"ok your wrong". you know, MAYBE just MAYBE the crew member with her at the scene... asked for those people to go get the ambulance to come take her since every other ambulance was busy taking people who really needed an ambulance, to the hospital.... and regardless of how minor her injuries were, she does need to recover. But after being on the news and stuff, she has to make it seem legit. Being a medic, I would think you would have more sense in knowing when you truly need an ambulance or not. and for her "broken leg" and "concussion" someone could have taken her to... wait for it... the HOSPITAL right next to the accident. To get her checked out, and saved everyone the heartache of this ridiculous over exaggeration of an accident. Yes it could have been worse.. but it wasn't. get over it.
Bawhahah

I know right? Nothing wrong with her at all.She even said she had a bruise on her leg.Now all of a sudden it's broke.If he was so concerned why didn't he put her in his car and drive her to ST.JOE JESSAMINE? It was right there.I agree with the other posters this smells fishy to me.I'm not buying it and KBEMS won't either.She's going to lose her liscense and then what will she do?She's not that good anyway.

It's all overblown and seems not to be true. Nobody left her alone.Pure fairytale all the way.

lol this is just so ridiculous, it is funny to me... i mean I know ssj isn't a lvl1 trauma or anything, but they do have x-ray machines and pain meds. and yea this ems service needs to get some shit together, no matter how shitty they are, they aren't just gonna get a pt out of the back of the ambulance see her trapped, laugh and walk away. gah. they sure have screwed themselves.... kinda feel a tiny bit sorry for them... and i say them.. because well they both lied. so they both will get punished. and i don't think it's gonna be a smack on the hand...

Let me ask you this...what if it was a member of your family that was left there no matter how minor or serious the injury?? You would be pissed bout it too so don't set there and tell people that its over blown just because you don't like a certain person or because your kissing a certain person ass!!!! When family is involed feelings and emotions run deep and you say you know who I am well man up and tell me who you think this is then you just might be surprised!!!!

well she wasn't left alone.. so good try and its quite disrespectful to the ones who were there with her. And if it was MY family member, I would have taken it upon myself to make sure she got the care she needed, instead of waiting for someone else to do it for me. especially since there was a hospital right next to the accident. and the people there with her (because she wasn't left) were well qualified to treat her. Like the crew members on scene (because she wasn't left) and her fiance. I'd be pretty pissed if I was a family member of the people who would have had to wait on an ambulance to take a minor injury two feet away, when my family member could have possibly been dying. And I would have been pissed if i was a woodford co ems employee, who would have to drive so far away and leave my own people with out ems protection. just to take a minor injury to a hospital, once again, RIGHT THERE NEXT TO THE ACCIDENT.

Yes,That's so true. It's all coming out.

What about immobilization? C collar and back board she was involved in a wreck fact of the matter remains she waited for an ambulance when she didn't or shouldn't have had too. The failings of this service and it's supervisors are immense and favoritism at this place will eventually get someone killed. Under qualified and over promoted individuals run a services that will be coming to your aid just remember that!

Jealous of nothing sorry, Im just glad that the public can see what kind of leadership they have and that of this can happen then next time a more serious incident could happen resulting in greater loss. People don't realize it's not just colds and stubbed toes they are transporting people to the hospital for, codes,major trauma, STEMI's and the list of serious conditions goes on but what would I know

I know of a man in wilmore who had a stroke and spinal minigitis spent 4 months in the hospital needed speical medical equiment and a medical bed at home and when he was sent home none of that had been set up by the outside company that had been contacted by this mans family and when jessamine county EMS got him to his home and were told nothing was ready the EMS supervisor was contacted and told the EMT's to put him in a regular bed and leave!!!! Even though this man needed to be proped up at a 35-40 degree angle,need to be on a oxygen consentrater, he was on a feeding tube,and had trach tube in his throat!! They were basiclly gonna leave him to die right there infront of his family because the EMS supervisor told them not to take him back to the hospital just get him in the house and leave!!!! That's what jessamine county EMS has come to first this poor man now they are shiting on one of their own!!!! They need a new supervisor someone how cares bout the people in this county and the people that work for him, not just the ass kissers!!!!!!
and then

Yeah,what would you know? Nothing wrong with the service or leadership at all. Just a spoiled little ex-employee that wanted to get back at the guy that fired him and is dragging his girlfriend down with him.She needs to put some distance between herself and this troublemaker.He's nothing special.Even if he thinks he is.

I know first hand that she was not "abandoned". There was confusion, yes, that there was another patient, being her,the ems worker. But, she got help. and no truck was cancelled from assisting. NO she is not the hardest working ems worker, and she is actually quite hateful at times. BUT anyway, I agree that her fiance' is out for REVENGE. AND there are some angry ex-employees who are adding fuel to the fire,when they really don't know the facts about this incident.SHe has learned her hateful ways from him. Tell the truth people.

EMS stands for Emergency Medical Services. They arent your in home care takers. If his shit wasn't set up, it's not EMS fault. The hospital would have probably sent him back home. Your problem should be with the people who disnt set up hos equiptment.If all he needed was to be propped up. Why didn't you do it for him? And she was not left alone. She is lying. And they truth will emerge and she and he will Be in a shit load of hurt,
