  1. my my what I have missed while in hiding

  2. I'll take Spenac's version as it fits many I've worked with over the years better lol.
  3. Wish I looked that good in a flight suit
  4. bobswife - tell everybody in there hey for me

  7. Here's a great idea - don't ask on here, pick up the phone, call your state ems office, ask for the legal dept and find out what the state allows, then ensure that flies with the dept you are with. But as others have said, FR are on their way out quickly, most places I know will only hire them as drivers as they can't legally work the back here. Though that is just this area. But if you are serious about this as your profession, get your paramedic.
  8. SO you are saying that experiencing my former partner choosing to murder his child should have had no effect on me? Along with going on multiple injuries from child abuse and other things. All of these experiences have taken a little piece of my heart and made me the caring provider I am. There are times I do get angery, but I've seen both sides of the fence, parents desperately trying to do the best they can, struggling hard and unfortunately it just isn't enough for no fault of their own. THey're working, but make just over public assistance poverty level. It's sad. Those make me chang
  9. I try to maintain professionalism as best I can, but there are times that I am left going what snapped in your head? At a prior job I worked at (at this is public knowledge so I can safely post it) the partner I worked with one evening seemed a little off, but then again he was one of those people who always seemed a bit "off". I was scheduled to work with him the following evening, and while I was working two jobs, went on to a shift in another county considerably farther away. THat night when I came in, I was pissed because my partner was missing and assumed he walked off the job (a frequ
  10. Hey there, it's all good. Just been busy and had log in issues. Take care !

  11. I know there are people that I would not trust independent functioning. Until the education changes here, unfortunately, there is a need for EMS personel in the US to be babysat. Sadly there are good medics that could function independent just fine, but there are the stupid ones that do idiotic things that ruin it for the rest of us. Change the education and maybe we'll see some progress.
  12. I have used it on one patient and that's it. It was a unique situation, and the patient wasn't really a candidate to be cric due to some other issues. It worked, but I prefer to keep my fingers, and wouldn't do so without 'lytics on board so I know that I'm not going to have them bite down on me. Be safe and smart about it there is a time and place for it, but mostly it's fallen out of favor.
  13. Hey there, Being a female, my opinion doesn't count as much as I'm not a guy and weirded out by that however, in the female population you have the issue with working with lesbians. I am not homophobe by any means, but I did make it clear that was not my interest, nor was it going to be my interest and I've had a great time working with some of them, a few I even consider to be close friends. Some I didn't but it was because of skill or personality issues, not because they were lesbians. All that being said, the discussion was made once at work when we had two lesbians, two gay guys, a
  14. Would like very much to read it as this is definitely an area of interest for me. The doc that was discussing this at conference, will be there again this year with a follow up and so I'm interested to see how things stack up and would like to be educated prior. PM me and I will forward my personal e-mail to send it to. THanks !
  15. At home - speedy gonzales cable - it rocks ! At work - usually DSL , but one still has dial up which is pitifully slow - it's ridiculous. I think it's carved out of the stone age,and when the site's having issues it's even worse !
