The introduction of IN Ketamine for pain relief puts all AV paramedics at risk of exposure. Ambulance Victoria does not recognise the potential for accidental environmental exposure to ketamine, and has disciplined paramedics as a result.
We ask all staff to protect themselves and become educated about the dangers of environmental exposure to ketamine and support our campaign for change. The resumption of drug testing means paramedics are at risk and the consequences are severe and potentially career ending.
