** Ambulance Victoria in Australia heavily fined for failing to properly monitor drug supplies
** Ambulance Victoria in Australia is now $400,000 poorer after being convicted of improperly monitoring its drug supplies.
That is the word from the AAP (March 8) which said the organization pleaded guilty Thursday at Warrnambool Magistrates
Court. According to the news organization, the service was charged with failing to provide a safe working environment and failing
to ensure volunteer officers are not exposed to risks. The case erupted after the 2015 suicide of a Heywood paramedic. An autopsy
found the practitioner had both fentanyl and morphine in his system at the time of his death.
