Tell us has your experience with this business or person been good? What's this?

While visiting with family down in Massachusetts, my husband and I got into a car accident. This left me with grievous injuries which required Emergency Medical treatment. While being transported to the hospital I suffered further injuries due to the erratic nature of the care I was being provided by one Mr Tj Martineau( even though the name badge read LT, upon further inquiry at the hospital I was informed this Emergency Medical responders name was TJ Martineau, license number P0904463). He was very distraught and distracted. It took him four times to administer an IV, which resulted in my entire arm becoming bruised at the sight of injection. During the commotion of the multiple attempts, he ripped his gloves and I watched as he handled the needle essentially bare-handed on his last attempt of administering the IV... Before I could tell him to stop, he had already got the needle in. Three days after my transport I developed a massive infection in that arm at exactly the spot the IV was administered. Upon contacting the Massachusetts Office of Emergency Medical Services they failed to take any action in holding Mr Tj Martineau accountable, as it seemed to be swept up under the rug entirely. With such a response I have had to start legal proceedings to hold this Emergency Medical Service responder accountable, so that others don't fall victim to the same type of malpractice.
