People are calling for an ambulance less and UBER is to blame!
A new study reports ambulance usage declined by 7% since Uber hit cities across the country.
According to the researchers, a cost-benefit analysis may play into people’s decision to search for an Uber driver — often a cheaper option — instead of dialing 911.
That makes sense, but we have to remember, paramedics are medically trained to provide care en route. Uber drivers are not.
