    The 930 is the autoloader version.

    “Begley was pronounced deceased at the scene by EMS paramedics”

    I did not know they had that authority.
    “pronounced” or “declared”, same thing?
    I thought that was the legal domain of the ME or another MD. Dead words matter.

      A quick search revealed a licensed nurse may pronounce death where a doctor is not available, such as a nursing home. Otherwise, the patient’s vitals can be communicated to a doctor, who will then make the pronouncement remotely. I think this is what occurred here- EMS on the scene reported to the ER doctor, and the reporters, as usual, missed that part. Any EMS types out there to confirm this?

      • CCO says:

        Not an EMS type, but when my uncle passed at home the rescue squad leader called (well, I think I called and he spoke to) the physician. It’s the same state, although years earlier so maybe same laws.
