Health Care Cure
EVERY HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT SHOULD GRADUATE AS A CERTIFIED PARAMEDIC
If every person around you is a certified paramedic, and you are hurt… What would be the need to rush off to an emergency room? The person standing next to you is capable of administering care. Only catastrophic events would require a hospital visit. Wouldn’t that ease the strain on emergency care centers? Of course it would. The solution: Education is the answer. We’ve heard that our entire life. If that’s the case, why isn’t every high school graduate a certified paramedic? Training begins in the 11th grade, extended through the 12th grade. Think of how that program could be extended into diagnostic and other medical care. All this courtesy of the Good Samaritan Act: Good Samaritan laws offer legal protection to people who give reasonable assistance to those who are, or who they believe to be, injured, ill, in peril, or otherwise incapacitated. By contrast, a duty to rescue law requires people to offer assistance, and holds those who fail to do so liable.
