Since December 1, Bavaria's emergency paramedics may make more minor medical interventions on patients. Due to a change in the Rescue Service Act, it is no longer absolutely necessary for an emergency physician to be on site. Whether a paramedic can take a measure is specified in a "checklist". The new regulation is not only intended to provide patients with faster help, because they no longer have to wait for the doctor to arrive. However, the emergency paramedics must be given appropriate training in this regard.
