Seem to remember recently a study which established that two attending paramedics is incontrovertibly superior than a single provider, but it also stated that additional medics not only did not improve care but actually had a negative impact. Basically article or study said two is best, better than one or more than two. Is this another one of my chronologically induced fantasies or does anyone know the reference so that I can use it in support of some local staffing challenges

Thankyou very much for your comment on my DUI. I wanted to ask you if you thought by starting back to school to complete my paramedic is an idea for what you are saying getting my feet wet.
