TORONTO – Proposed changes to ambulance rules in Ontario could see paramedics take patients to facilities other than a hospital emergency department, or treat them and release them on scene.

People calling 911 for medical assistance could also be directed to other facilities in the community.

The proposals, posted this week on the province's regulatory registry, are aimed at easing hospital overcrowding.
