Photo of the Week: Paramedic goes the extra mile for a patient — literally

Two Delaware EMS providers walked three blocks to bring a patient's perishable groceries home after a medical emergency

Calling all EMS photographers! EMS1 wants to see pictures of you in action or training. Submit a photo — it could be selected as our Photo of the Week! Be sure to include your name, department information and some background on the photo.

This week's Photo of the Week comes from New Castle County (Del.) Paramedics showing a medic going the extra mile — literally — to help a patient who suffered a medical emergency on her way home from the market. 

The patient had a cart of fresh groceries including perishables. After transport was initiated, the New Castle County paramedic, along with a St. Francis EMS lieutenant, walked three blocks, delivered the items to the patient's family and notified them of their loved one's condition and transport destination.
