Would you call an ambulance?

If a member is in your office and clearly very sick but says not to call an ambulance or paramedic, and your staff really thinks you should, do you do it?

The situation happened at my office today. It's a worthwhile discussion for a staff meeting.

Tough situation but I've been there and did call an ambulance and was glad I did. Every situation is different though and I think you need to go on a gut reaction when it happens. Hopefully I won't have to make that decision again.

I would call the ambulance and if they refuse to go we will pay for the ambulance.

Wow ... and I thought I'd encountered just about everything in association management. Call the ambulance.
