The St. Louis Post-Dispatch analyzed driver's licence records, criminal records and ambulance personnel records in the state of Missouri and found that the State failed to perform criminal and background checks on applicants for paramedical and emergency medical techninician positions. The computer-assisted investigation found that many people convicted of felonies and alcohol-related offenses continue to hold their medical service licences. As a result of the story, Missouri Governor, Mel Carnahan ordered an investigation into the licensing practices of the State Health Department's Bureau of Emergency Medical Services, Nov. 20, 22; Dec. 11, 27, 29, 1994.
