    • PHO? I'm guessing that's what your service calls banked time?  
    • Thanks!  Were they allocated to NY?
    • Well I hate to sound like an old crotchety medic but every one of us knows what we signed up for.  We are exposed to all sorts of pathogens, we take precautions, and if you don't then it's not on your service, it's on you.   These days you have to protect yourself because no-one else is going to do so.  Go in on every call with the mindset that they have COVID, Sepsis, EBOLA and every other communicable disease and protect yourself.   You have to protect yourself first.  If you are not protected, then DO NOT GO IN TO the scene.  You would not go in a fire scene if you didn't have bunker gear on right?  You would not go in a TB patients room without an N95 mask on right?   Today, it's on you to protect yourself because in the END, you have to go home to your family and no one is going to provide for your family other than you.  
    • I've noticed that telephones can once in a while be tough to get from your pocket in regular situations, and that were given me thinking that it'd probable be even tougher to do so in conditions in which your adrenaline is pumping and camera smartwatch and the entirety is taking place very fast. And I'm asking folks that paintings in rapid-paced enviornments so that I can get an accurate idea of how many humans surely revel in the hassle we are seeking to resolve.
