Nashville Fire and EMS Personnel Cleared in Patient Death

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (News Channel 5) – Eight Metro Nashville Fire Department personnel will be back on the job next week.

Fire Chief Ricky White put them on administrative leave Wednesday after a NewsChannel 5 investigation revealed an ambulance did not transport a gunshot victim to hospital, despite the fact he was still breathing.

Friday, Vanderbilt University Medical Center took responsibility for medical decisions made in the case.

Chief White told NewsChannel 5 Investigates that none of his employees will be disciplined.
