Source: Die Linke “The federal government is failing with its aim of achieving more legal security for emergency paramedics. Instead of bringing about a long overdue and urgently needed improvement in their situation, the federal government’s draft also standardises the uncertainty for this profession, ”explains Harald Weinberg, spokesman for hospital policy for the DIE LINKE parliamentary group, with a view to tomorrow’s hearing on the MTA reform. Law that also contains regulations regarding the Emergency Paramedic Act. Weinberg continues: “Since the federal government’s draft is simply unsuitable, we introduced an amendment to the parliamentary deliberations. We want paramedics to be allowed to actually perform measures that they have learned and mastered in their training and to be legally protected. We must stop making their work difficult. In what other profession does it exist that you learn something in training, and if you then apply it in your profession, you go to court ?! On top of that, the treatment of patients with minor and non-serious injuries can even relieve in-patient care resources, since these are currently being transported to hospitals for liability reasons and for reasons of remuneration. The problem has long been known, the federal government must finally act. The corona pandemic in particular should have made it clear again what important work the paramedics do. “
