On the same page: making transitions between EMS & urgent care centers smooth

Medic 25 is called to a local urgent care center to a chief complaint of a possible heart attack at 8:45 p.m. On their way there, one of the medics tells his partner they’ve been getting multiple calls to this facility at about the same time each evening, so they can “unload” their patients before it closes at 9 p.m. He says it’s usually for minor complaints and seems to be more for the convenience of the urgent care center staff than for any true emergencies.
