Hahaha oh my god. That is abysmal. I’m a little confused as to why their request was granted. Did they straight up lie about the condition of the patient?That particular patient? The crew didn't want to transport and wanted to go back to station. That was the flight crews interpretation anyway.
That service is known for lazy and poor standard of care. I can't attest to much about their actual quality, but it's incidents like that, that given them a poor reputation.
The risk, the expense and the opportunity cost or that resource....boggles the mind.
