Hospital Transfers

You are not forced to go to the hospital because you called 911. It is often strongly recommended that you go to the hospital, but if you are awake, alert, and oriented, you have the right to choose whether or not you will be transported via ambulance. If you choose to refuse transport to the hospital, you will be asked to sign a Patient Refusal Form by the paramedics to document your decision to refuse medical care.
