State, medical officials investigating paramedic in Union Co.

Posted: Updated:
UNION COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

A Union County paramedic, who was recently left his job, is under investigation by state investigators and medical officials.

The State Bureau of Investigations told WBTV that it is working with the North Carolina Board of Pharmacy to investigate a former Union County EMS paramedic.

SBI officials would only say that the investigation is ongoing.

Because the paramedic has not been charged, WBTV is not identifying him.

In an email to WBTV, Carolina's Healthcare System said "the paramedic was employed by Carolinas HealthCare System as a paramedic for Union County EMS from September 29, 2004 to May 2, 2013.  We are fully cooperating with authorities related to this situation."

State investigators began looking into the case this week.
