Brickbat: First-Rate Care

Emergency

The Brevard County, Florida, fire department has fired firefighter and paramedic Kenneth Hallenbeck after he was caught on video dumping a cancer patient from a gurney to a hospital floor. Hallenbeck had asked the man to get out of the gurney. The patient refused because a bed wasn't ready for him. This apparently angered Hallenbeck, who overturned the gurney.
