Rural health care system needs help as basic levels
November 16, 2023
I don't remember much about my recent 64-block ambulance ride from my house to an urban hospital, but I was told after the fact that it was a matter of a few minutes to keep my body from going into septic shock.
The whole incident helped me understand the critical importance of getting rural patients to medical care as quickly as possible. It also speaks volumes about staffing those ambulances with competent medical professionals.
That's why I support the efforts of Sen. Myron Dorn of Adams in the upcoming Legislature. Nebraskans care about one another.
