Judge rules on ambulance records in hospital dispute
Published: June 2,2013
The Hattiesburg American reports that the order last week also requires the ambulance service to turn over copies of complaints made against it.
Wesley sued Forest General, AAA Ambulance Service and the Forrest County Board of Supervisors in April 2012, alleging that lies steered patients away from Wesley’s emergency room and to Forrest General’s.
The lawsuit alleges that some patients were falsely classified as trauma patients requiring treatment at Forrest General, and others were told Wesley lacked specialists or other things needed to care for their medical emergencies.
The hospital and ambulance service have denied the allegations.
