I think lpsolit and I set justdave up on this......

We suggested the relaxed rules with the anti-abuse provision.  It was 
modeled on the way that paramedics are allowed to stray from the 
established rules when they cannot reach a base hospital but have the 
exceptions reviewed after the fact.

document exactly how the criteria were met and ALL such incidemts were 
reviewed to make sure you didnt overstep.
