Description

A three-month, computer-assisted investigation of Florida's EMTs and paramedics revealed that the state certified hundreds of felons with violent criminal records to work as emergency care providers, despite convictions for violent crimes such as rape, child abuse, and even murder. It was discovered that these people were getting certified because the Florida Department of Health does not perform any type of criminal background check on its applicants.
