    MEDICS RUSHING IN BEFORE SCENE SECURE

    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..........

    MEDICS RUSHING IN BEFORE SCENE SECURE

    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 2: anyone else in attendance 3: the patient...... otherwise it would be hilarious to watch the antics when it all takes effect....

    Paediatric transport restrains

    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.

    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

    What do you do with psych patients?

    In bushys defence.........yep I am backing you on this brother....here in the great land of Oz...we as paramedics can and have legal right to restrain patients in 'our care' being with physical, chemical restaints or both. If the person is now ' compliant' ask them do they mind having them on for safety.....stating that the alternative is much worse...(a big cop sitting on them and being hand cuffed) if things go belly up.. if they are having an eipisode and require ambulance transport well then no issue...restain them then and there, or transport in the paddy waggon. Pateints in a physcosis or extreemly agitated state will not be all nice and easy and the paramount is MYPARTNER AND MY SAFETY... not the feelings of the supposed nutter in our care (term is tongue in cheek).
