  1. Welcome to the City!
  2. We roll the same for all calls. I am on the clock and it really doesn't matter who the patient is, unless of course it was Jennifer Aniston.
  3. The damp socks go on your feet and the wet ones are hung around your neck to dry.
  4. I toothache can be pretty darn serious leading to a host of life threatening situations, cellulitis, sepsis, pericarditis ...
  5. Being vague and paying toxic people to go away, heck yea!!
  6. I do not base my motivation on the patients chief complaint, nature of illness nor MOI. Equality of treatment, attitude and care for the patients is a key component of professionalism. I may fail in my endeavor to provide consistent, compassionate care to all patients, but I try not to fail.
  7. Then again the logical evolution of EMS as a profession would be for us to become primary care givers, wouldn't you think?
  8. Well, you just join right in nancybell. It is a pleasure to have you!
  9. Hello Monica, Congratulations on deciding on a career in EMS. I have found it to be challenging and rewarding in ways that go far beyond the money. We get to help people at times when they are most needy even though their complaint may seem menial to many. Knowing that I was able to make a difference is one of the most rewarding feelings. If you really love EMS then there is no reason why EMT should not be just the beginning. You should consider Paramedic somewhere in the future. Welcome!
  10. I hope i wasn't one of the offending parties, "Mr grumpy gills". I was attempting at humor. Your point is well received.
  11. First assist, cool,
  12. I am an ambulance driver, usually in the front seat, I mean, when I am Not an EMT-B riding in the back!
  13. In the wise words of Dr. Eminem ... Never take ecstasy, beer, baccardi, weed, pepto bismol, vivarin, tums, tagamet hb, xanax, and valium in the same day. It makes it difficult to sleep at night. Eminem quotes
