The job of paramedics and emergency medical technicians does not come without its unique challenges, as individuals who practice in this field are responsible ethically, morally, and legally for each treatment administered, conforming to a protocol appropriate for each situation. As a paramedic, you have limits as to the type of treatment you are allowed to perform, meaning that you must carry out your job within a defined scope of practice. As such, it’s easy for your role to be misunderstood, leaving your license easy prey for lawsuits based on charges of inaction or neglect.
