Patients do have rights when it comes to ambulance transports.  For example, the patient can refuse treatment and transport by signing an AMA (against medical advice) form.  In cases where the patient is unable to speak for him or herself, there is something called “implied consent”?  This means that a reasonable person in the same situation, say unconscious would request treatment and transport.  Patients also have the right to request private transport.  A friend or family member can take the patient to the ED in cases where the patient has not received or is in need of ambulance transport.
