Paramedics don't get paid anywhere near what they should. She's living paycheck to paycheck like most people.

I'm sure we'll see even more stories like this, except the ones down the road will end with the kid being kicked off the insurance and the mother being sued into oblivion. Oh, and they'll be kicked out of their home, and she'll start a GoFundMe for her bills that will only be fractionally funded.

GodNertsit.

Strange that she's being described as a paramedic working in an ER, transporting patients from triage to isolation. Where I work, that is one of the functions of an orderly, paramedics are the people who transport people to the hospital in an ambulance after providing basic care to get them there.

Liberal hoax, only old people get sick and they want to die to stick it to the libs. I bet if you go to the hospice there's nothing even happening outside.

She is a licensed paramedic, or at least someone by that name is. I looked up her license. Baptist Hospital appears to have their own EMS service, as they do have job postings for paramedics. EMS routinely moves patients from triage to other areas, e.g., patient ER rooms, CT scan, behavioral.

It's not uncommon for ER techs to be paramedics too.

Possibly, but once they are needing vent support they send an ER tech/RT/RN with on in facility transfers.

And normally the person working the triage desk is a paramedic working as a tech, so they'd be doing the initial check in.

And due to the proliferation of "healthplexes"  with freestanding ERs, hospitals have started their own transfer EMS services staffed with EMT/Paramedics.
