Sounds like Mr. Bolyard is trying to lay the blame onto the OEM dispatchers. How many times has Belington E.M.S refused transports from Broaddus Hospital? It took Broaddus Hospital threatening to call the Barbour County Commision and HIPPA to get that transport done. The dispatchers did not advised Broaddus to call Mr. Bolyard. They took it upon themselves to call. The OEM dispatchers did their JOBS by paging and calling BOTH squads in Barbour County. I agree with Commisioner Hart. Let the hospital call the squads themselves. Then the Squads can tell the hospital " no " directly. Instead of putting the Barbour County OEM dispatchers in the middle of the********battle.

First of all, Potbelly if you don't know what you are talking about stop making yourself look like an idiot in your posts. It is NOT the responsibility of the 911 dispatcher to find crews for transports out of Broaddus or any other hospital. If the hospital can not provide the care a patient needs, then it is there responsibility. The 911 dispatcher's job is to dispatch emergency personnel to EMERGENCIES. I would also like to say that Broaddus Hospital purchased an ambulance for them to do these runs out of Broaddus Hospital. If I had a gift like that given to me, I would make sure I had someone available to the hospital when needed. Keep your heads up Barbour 911 dispatchers. You do a great job despite what the misinformed idiots say.
