FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): An Ambulance Contractor in Fort Wayne has been fined over shortages. Officials from Three Rivers Ambulance Authority announced fined on its contractor for almost $575,000 since August because of staff shortages, according to The Journal Gazette.
PatientCare Logistics Solutions, previously known as Paramedics Plus, is being penalized for falling out of compliance when less than 90% of its ambulance services runs on time, which is affected by staffing shortages.
