State denies Vt medic license after fatalitySeptember 29,2012BENNINGTON — The state has rejected a license renewal for a Vermont paramedic for actions he took during a fatal motorcycle crash.
Vermont Emergency Services said Gillvray Hall of the Bennington Rescue Squad knowingly performed a heart procedure prohibited by the state and was slow in taking the motorcyclist to a hospital.
A Vermont EMS letter sent to Gillvray said he acted in ways that are “dangerous or injurious,” or potentially so.
William Hathaway, executive director of Bennington Rescue, said Hall is planning to appeal the decision. He said Hall continues to serve as operations manager.
Hathaway said Hall has been trained in performing the procedure in another state. It involves using a needle and catheter to remove fluid from the sac around the heart.MORE IN This Just InHARTFORD - Authorities say two people on a 40-foot-tall railroad trestle in West Hartford, Vt.
