Tonight I had the transfer of a lifetime. We transferred a 654 pound patient to a specialty center 120 miles away. He was intubated, paralyzed, Diprovanned and all that.
We had the basic stretcher but it's capacity was 700 pounds so even though the cot protested the cot was able to go up and down.
Midway thru the transfer he became more agitated throughout and we ended up giving him more Vec.
I have not worked (physically) on a call like I have on this one.
My back is sore, my butt hurts, my feet hurt.
But in the end, he made it to the receiving hospital and they took him from there.
