BANGKOK (NNT) - The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration has launched a check-up campaign affecting ambulances and emergency medical vehicles, branding certified vehicles with six-pointed stars, ensuring preparedness for 24-hour emergency medical services.

 

Staff of the Erawan Emergency Medical Center Bangkok have inspected ambulances and emergency medical vehicles as part of the certification campaign this year. Vehicles passing the inspection will have a six-pointed star sticker placed on them, with the text Bangkok EMS and the year of inspection.

 

The inspection covers checks for the readiness of onboard equipment and vouches that the vehicle’s condition is in keeping with approved standards, ensuring its capacity to serve the general public in cases of medical emergency.

 

The Governor of Bangkok Pol Gen Aswin Kwanmuang said today the Medical Service Department this year had checked and certified all high-level emergency medical vehicles in 9 zones since July, with 150 vehicles inspected. The department will be completing its inspection of some 1,000 standard ambulances and emergency vehicles by the end of September, raising the confidence of the general public.

 

The general public can make a request for emergency medical assistance at any time by calling the Erawan Center 1669.

So we have the operational equipment check and stamped. What about the medics inside the van who will check their knowledge and application?

It doesn't say, how much will the six star sticker cost then?

The sticker is only certified for the day it's stuck on the vehicle... after that it proves nothing !

And I just wonder what are the medical skills of ambulance drivers and staff.. Do they all know how to do basic CPR?? Or are they just a carriage service..

And the rotten broken vans and pickups with the cowboy rescue team will still be racing to the same accidents.

How about certification from an independent, International body without connections to for-profit hospitals and other entities?

How could you possibly get kickbacks under that arrangement? Come on, be reasonable
