Parents Protest Emergency Calls
Nelson Mar, AABANY Member, was quoted in a Dec. 15 Wall Street Journal article entitled “Parents Protest Emergency Calls.” The article focuses on Nelson’s case against the New York City Department of Education. Congratulations, Nelson!
Nelson Mar, an attorney for Legal Services NYC who is representing the parents, said fire department protocols say that children can be transported by EMS against a parent’s wishes only when the child’s life is at stake, or if it is clear that even a small delay will jeopardize the child’s health.
“In some ways the schools are treating the hospital emergency rooms as timeout rooms,” he said.
