Further, the New York State minimum staffing standards for the majority of ambulance services requires only an EMT--and not an AEMT--to be on staff when responding to a call, (214) leaving the potential that in some instances, a police officer could accidentally request that an EMT, and not an AEMT, perform a blood draw on a DWI suspect.
The first group is authorized to perform unsupervised blood draws on DWI suspects, and consists of physicians, registered professional nurses, registered physician's assistants, certified nurse practitioners, and AEMTs.
Shea's Law expands the class of medical professionals who may perform an unsupervised blood draw with the addition of two medical professionals: certified nurse practitioners ("CNPs") and AEMTs.
The addition of AEMTs to the list of persons who may perform unsupervised blood draws is also a positive change; however, not extending this to emergency medical technicians ("EMT") leaves open the possibility that some DWI blood draws will still be suppressed.
