There is #NoExcuseforAbuse when it comes to our staff. Our hard-working Emergency Medical Dispatchers (EMDs) have recently reported an increase in abusive Triple Zero (000) phone calls. We invited 9 NewsQueensland along to our Brisbane Operations Centre to speak to EMDs about how their role is pivotal in providing early patient care and how verbal abuse can interfere with getting the best resources to our patients.
From death threats to raging tempers, #9News can reveal the horrifying callers hurling abuse at Queensland emergency operators.
A spike in savage triple zero calls is sparking an urgent warning from Queensland Ambulance Service.
