I've been thinking for a while about Medics, skills and facilities. IMTU, I figure Level 1 is about first-aider/paramedic standard, Level 2 is about full nurse/trainee doctor standard, Level 3 is a qualified GP/surgeon, and Level 4+ is various levels of consultants of repute.
This may differ IYTU of course, but I'm more interested in the effects of hospital facilities.

Picture a Level 4 consultant surgeon treating someone at a roadside accident with only his LBB (little black bag) to help. How much of his skill could he actually apply? How would the patient's chances compare if he were treated by a paramedic at the roadside, or the surgeon in a fully equipped hospital? How good is the sick bay on a ship (I know this has been covered to some extent elsewhere) What happens if a TL15 surgeon finds himself using TL8 or TL2 facilities? Cryo revival depends on medic skill, but what about facilities? How do you compare revival from a capsule in a shipwreck to revival in a Starport hospital?
Thoughts, anyone?
