    and the fact there will be a person or PERSONS in any one of the situations you mentioned...single room establishments or multi roomed ones
    the fact still remains there is some in there with a gun that is bent on killing or injuring people....so again what good is an ambo that has been shot to the other people that also have had this fate..........

    the bad guy is going to have a shot at anyone he sees
    even more so if it is some one in uniform.....don't matter what uniform......
    even worse if the attending paramedic is wearing a POLICE ballistic vest
    wouldn't the BIG WORD of POLICE written in BRIGHT WHITE letters be sort of a TARGET

    the reason we get told to stay outside and wait for the scene to be cleared is a damn good one
    NO ONE can get saved if the attending paramedic cops one...........

    the cops are the ones that are paid to do the risky stuff.......it is a fact of life in a terrible situation like this people DIE....not good if more people are put at risk than need to be.....

    gawd......be funny if it wasn't....

    1: the person giving it

    Here in nsw. We have the combi style kids seat...it goes from a baby capsule to one that fits a kit of 4 or 5 as a seat. The ambulance stretchers have dedicated mounting points for the correct and approved mounts for the seats.

  9. craig added a post in a topic What is on the Australia paramedic exam?   

    what Aussie paramedic exam?

    do some research and you will find there is none

    to beemployed as a paramedic in Australia, you either have to be employed by a state authority (as in ambulance service) or a contracted private provider (non emergency as in a 911) and have degree in prehosptal care/ paramedical studies

    good luck with your search

  10. craig added a post in a topic Patient Interview Questions for the Medic?   

    Does yhe student get all the answers required from the patient? Has she missed vital questions or just 'got them out of order'?
    The OP didnt say she missed them, just that she asked questions at inappropriate times. In whose mind did this happen in, her ONLY preceptor?
    Maybe the way she covers her payient questioning is the way she feels comfirtable doing it and getting things formulated in her mind. If she gets the required answers to allow correct treatment of the patients condition, wheres the probl er m? Howevere if she does not get the required information or her questioning delays definative treatment....well there's a problem
    Excuse the spelling and typo's small keyboard on the smart phone and early start to the morning....
