RN helps Paramedics

A registered Nurse is now working along side the Superior North Emergency Medical Services team. Chief Norm Gale says the nurse will ease pressure for paramedics. The nurse will take EMS patients from paramedics, so they can deal with other calls instead of waiting for a doctor to take the patients. Gale says the nurse will be on call eight hours a day, seven days a week, up until March 31st of 2011. The position was funded by the Ministry of Health.
