Re: “Police Dispatch

If it's true that paramedics refused to treat the man, this is appalling. It is obvious from the description that the man had taken something that was causing him altered mental status. This man belonged in the hospital, not the jail. Excited delirium can kill. It can also be treated.

I hope there is more to this story than reported. If not, then there needs to be some serious retraining at both the police department and the EMS service.

This sort of incident breeds lawsuits. If the risk managers don't catch this, something even worse is wrong.
