Hospitals and health care clinics have a responsibility to provide adequate support for doctors and maintain a healthy environment for patients. They also are responsible for overseeing the contractual agreements they enter into with independent ambulance and EMT services, as well as staffing emergency rooms with trained and licensed medical staff and doctors. Nursing staff coverage is important and patients must be timely evaluated. In fact, hospitals have established policies and procedures that must be followed. These protocols establish the "standard of care".
