FARMINGTON — The state office that oversees emergency medical services has dismissed most complaints about the medical treatment provided to David Morse, who died en route to the hospital after a skiing accident on Sugarloaf earlier this year.

The Maine Emergency Medical Services report released today gives details about an investigation into allegations by Morse’s wife, Dana Morse. She claimed the NorthStar ambulance crew that treated her husband after the accident did not care for him properly.

Maine Emergency Medical Services dismissed complaints against the ambulance service and all but one of the emergency medical technicians involved in the treatment of David Morse, the report states.

The report only finds evidence that a paramedic involved with the response may have violated standards for report documentation, thought it “does not rise to a level warranting disciplinary action.”

Otherwise, the report concludes that other responders and officials followed proper protocol.

According to the report, Dana Morse had been riding in the ambulance taking her husband to the hospital after the skiing accident and she was dropped off alongside the road in a snowstorm for reasons that remain unclear.

David Morse, 41, of Harmony, Nova Scotia, died en route to the hospital on Jan. 12, shortly after 5 p.m.

Jay Bradshaw, director of Maine Emergency Medical Services, will be available this afternoon to answer questions about the report.
