Palos primary care Center 15300 West Avenue suite 120 South Orland Park la 708 226-2323 911 dispatch error causes loss of Rescue timely Carter Nelsen special to the Star a mistake by a 911 dispatcher Cost Homer township paramedics valuable time As they rushed last month to Aid a heart attack victim who died authorities said. The dispatcher apparently misreading a computer screen sent two emergency medical teams to the wrong address on nov. 24 after a resident reported an unconscious family member. By the time paramedics realized the error it took them Iva minutes to reach the Correct address in the 13700 Block of 167th Street just 2.2 Miles from the nearest fire station. When paramedics arrived Richard Krouse 59, a retired Chicago firefighter had no vital signs and they could not revive him. Krouse was pronounced dead at Silver Cross Hospital that night. The cause of death was a heart attack according to the will county coroners office. A we admit the mistake a said Deputy chief Robert buhs of the Orland fire Protection District. A it was an error in communication and appropriate action will be the dispatcher remains on duty pending further investigation into the incident buhs said. Orland fire District officials will review a recording of the 911 Call he said. Homer township Deputy fire chief Mike Schofield said the average response time for township paramedics ranges from four to six minutes throughout the District. It was unclear whether the delay contributed to Krouses death Schofield said. A a it a really hard to Tell a he said. A i done to know what to one of Krouses sons said the family was aware of the error. A fall i remember is it took them awhile to get Here a he said. Relatives declined to comment further. But Schofield said the family thanked him for his Agency a response to the emergency. A 911 Call in Homer township goes to will county sheriffs police who instantly route it to the appropriate Agency. The Orland fire District handles emergency Calls for the Homer township fire Protection District which does not have its own dispatchers. Schofield said Krouses family called 911 about 6 30 . On nov. 24 after he became unconscious. The Orland fire District dispatcher relayed the Call to the Homer fire District which sent one team of paramedics from each of its two firehouses. Both stations Are within about 2vz Miles of Krouses Home with one about 2.2 Miles away at 159th Street and Cedar Road. The Orland fire districts 911 system automatically displays the location of a Call on a computer screen. But the dispatcher apparently mistook 167th Street for 159th Street and broadcast the wrong address buhs said. The fault Lay with the dispatch office not the paramedics he said. A Homer did not fail a buhs said. �?o911 did not fail. It was a Tele communicator a from the time of the Call to the arrival of the first ambulance at the House the dispatcher instructed the family Over the Telephone on How to give cardiopulmonary resuscitation buhs said. A she did give instructions the entire time so car was initiated a he said. A that does not take away from the fact that an error was by the time paramedics arrived at Krouses Home 11 minutes and 36 seconds had elapsed Schofield said. A similar incident two years ago led the Fiance of a Chicago Ridge woman to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the Village Amer tech and the Southwest Central dispatch Agency. The lawsuit is pending. A computer glitch led a Southwest Central dispatcher to Send paramedics to the woman a former address. A problem with Merit Echo a computer system prevented Southwest centrals 911 system from displaying the Correct address. The dispatcher and Chicago Ridge paramedics failed to confirm the address with the caller. In that incident 12 minutes passed before an ambulance reached the scene.
