May 28, 2022 – 5 pm EST

On Saturday, May 28th, our host Dr. Marianne Ritchie talked with three guests about ambulance and emergency medical care and what happens when you have a medical emergency and need help.

Listen to learn what happens in the ambulance on the way to the hospital, what determines your place in line at the Emergency Department, what occurs during your visit, and why you may have to wait for emergency care. Also covered are important facts about Ambulance companies and how they maintain their 24-hour readiness.

Our guests are highly respected providers – a nationally registered paramedic, an experienced nurse manager, and a skilled emergency medicine physician from the staff of the Narberth Ambulance Company and the Emergency Department at Lankenau Medical Center.
