More Anderson County residents are refusing to be transported by ambulance against the advice of first responders, Public Safety Director Bart Powell said, although it’s been difficult to determine why.
By the end of 2013 an average of 70-80 people per month refused to go to the hospital via ambulance, Powell said, about 15-20 more patients than at the beginning of 2013.
The number of people requesting not to use an ambulance accounts for roughly 20-25 percent of total ambulance runs a month, according to data provided by Powell.
