Case Summary

4643 REVIEW DENIED An EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) licensed under the Health & Safety Code is a health care professional for purposes of MICRA (Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act); since the license authorizes the EMT to drive an ambulance, he is rendering professional services while doing so; a suit by a police officer who was accompanying an arrestee in the back of an ambulance being driven by the EMT, and who was injured when the EMT's negligent driving caused the ambulance to strike a stationary object, is subject to special rules created by MICRA for actions against health care providers for injuries resulting from professional negligence.
