TN Paramedic Demoted After Medication Error

When Melvin Davis was carried into the emergency room last Thursday, a doctor noticed something wasn’t right.

“Soon after we arrived at Erlanger with a patient, [the ER doctor] visually determined the wrong IV bag was hung and reported it to the supervisor,” said Chief Ken Wilkerson, who oversees Hamilton County Medical Services.
