  8. Note to self: Don't get critically sick or injured in FSU EMT's district....I might be better off just walking to the hospital then have you respond.... Your dead on.......agree 1000%
  9. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh and I live here now,I been an EMT for 9 years here in PA. "The center" as its called by the students has a more evasive medic program, they schedule all your ride time and hospital time and only the center can you precept with STAT MEDEVAC and Pittsburgh EMS. CCAC is the community college that offers the medic program and actually has a poor passing rates as compared to the center who has a higher rate and costs more but well worth it. I have heard alot of good things about the center medic program. Good luck buddy! Anymore questions, private message m
  10. I haven't had too many patients die on me, I did however had a 3 month old die on Christmas Eve morning 3 years ago from SIDS, it was an Inter-facility emergency transport with Children's hospital of Pittsburgh critical care transport team. This was a terrible way to end a 12 hour shift, I admit I did get a bit teary eyed for a few minutes, but mostly because it was a day before Christmas and the fact the child died at home and the mother was at work at that time had no idea what happened. I have cried over family death my step-mom and grandfather were ones I did not take well, especially

  14. So, in court which would be the "higher authority" The DNR or the state protocols??? The protocols tell you to use Adenosine, but the DNR tells you no CPR, etc., but you killed the patient only because the protocols told you to. Kinda between a rock and a hard place with this one......
