I guess it depends on why you are taking the ride. My one and only ride in an ambulance was for a shatter femur.

My same response applies to the hospital; if I'm not conscious to refuse to go, then it's probably for good reason. Generally I view the hospital as the place to go when you want to die, with a few exceptions.

Last time I've been rushed to a hospital, I was having an allergic reaction to an antibiotic. But that was not really a life-threatening situation, even though the physician who attended me was quite surprised that I didn't have a shortness of breath and questioned me about it a few times.
