Follow Eddie's lead. He's an experienced guy in the Newark EMS world.
Simple: definitive medical care is an MD, not a paramedic. There are 3 hospitals in the City of Newark, and 3 more right outside the city limits. If you have a sick patient, it is often in the patient's best interest to rapidly transport to the ER, with the ER bring the nearest location of ALS. So if the nearest ALS unit is 10 minutes away coming from the other side of the city, and the hospital is 5 minutes away, it doesn't benefit the patient to wait.:unsure: ???
