Ambulance crews in Hancock County are still suffering too many mistakes despite operating under a “Plan of Corrections” for months to address them.
The Blessing Hospital EMS Director says that must stop.
Dr. Kelly Cox oversees ambulance services in Hancock, Adams, Brown and Pike counties. He has considerable latitude under state law to remedy the situation. He can suspend the licenses of EMTs who are not doing the job well. He could even suspend the county-wide service. He could also suggest the Illinois Department of Public Health issue fines.
