Hancock County Board moves to eliminate EMS board

The Hancock County Board has moved to eliminate the County EMS Board.

This according to the Hancock County Journal Pilot.

Now the county EMS coordinator will report directly to the county's Health and Miscellaneous Committee.

You'll recall the service has already been under a "Plan of Corrections" for months to address problems in its service.

Then in May more recent lapses were reported, including failing to ask a patient about drug allergies and inaccurate logs. The Blessing Hospital EMS Director says that must stop.

Last month the County Board delayed hiring consultants to help get the county's ambulance service up to code.
