ACCORDING TO SOMEONE WHO HELPED TREAT THE PATIENT, THE DUTCH AMBULANCE FOLLOWED PROTOCOL. THE FRENCH AMBULANCE HAD BROKEN DOWN, AND THEREFORE, THE DUTCH AMBULANCE TRANSPORTED HIM TO THE DUTCH SINT MAARTEN MEDICAL CLINIC. SHE ADDED THAT THEY WOULD NEVER REFUSE A PATIENT.
Scooter accident causeway Pdp side roundabout, happened on Dutch side. However French ambulance and gendarmes waited at border, one Dutch side police officer walked all the way to the border (time) to talk to gendarmes. Probably French side scooter driver. I think humanity us of first priority. It happened on the side side, Dutch ambulance was there, take him to the hospital ASAP, then talk protocols/politics. Also, in French hospital you could be from Timbuktu or Nepal, you get admitted and treated, paying or no paying. On the Dutch side, even in Emergency cases, you’re not getting in unless you can show a credit card or insurance.
