This article considers the facts that gave rise to this litigation, why the trial judge found that the treating paramedic was negligent and why that decision was overturned by the NSW Court of Appeal. The paper then considers the legal principles that arise from this decision and their importance for ambulance services throughout Australia.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Emergency and Primary Health Care, v.5 (2)||Publisher:||Australian College of Ambulance Professionals and the Monash University Department of Community Emergency Health and Paramedic Practice||Place of Publication:||Melbourne||ISSN:||1447-4999||Field of Research (FOR):||180126 Tort Law||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||940401 Civil Justice||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://www.jephc.com/full_article.cfm?content_id=424||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 151|
