The Queensland Ambulance Service Commissioner has taken responsibility for the death of a Brisbane mother who died after waiting over 1.5 hours for an ambulance. The woman called emergency services with chest pains and her case was designated as urgent, but no ambulance ever arrived. The ambulance service has launched a review into the matter and acknowledged that they should have responded in a more timely manner. Half of the available ambulances were reportedly stuck at hospitals waiting to unload patients. Doctors and healthcare workers expressed frustration with the ongoing issue of ambulance ramping.
