    It depends on what staff are available. Most EKG techs are female, from my experience. If a female wasn't available, then they should have notified the patient. The standard of care for chest pain is an EKG within 10 minutes of arrival, plus a cardiac panel, oxygen, aspirin, nitro, and morphine if nitro ineffective.

    She will only be entitled to compensation if she can prove that they didn't follow the standard of care due to negligence, and that she suffered damage because of non-intervention.
