  1. I am From Canada. We have a great system. Under the terms of the Canada Health Act, all "insured persons" (basically, legal residents of Canada, including permanent residents) are entitled to receive "insured services" without copayment. Such services are defined as medically necessary services if provided in hospital, or by 'practitioners' (usually physicians).[2] Approximately 70% of Canadian health expenditures come from public sources, with the rest paid privately (both through private insurance, and through out-of-pocket payments). The extent of public financing varies considerably across services. For example, approximately 99% of physician services, and 90% of hospital care, are paid by publicly funded sources, whereas almost all dental care is paid for privately.[3] Most doctors are self-employed private entities.
  2. Which is a better Stethoscope: the Littmann Cardiology III or Littmann Master Cardiology Stethoscope ?
  3. I enjoy pointing out the incorect assessment of my original post. Read the other posts. They are toxic. None of the replies are connected to the topic. I am probably the first student to be granted a full refund. Toxic ranting with no real connection to the topic. internet whacko? Your lost. I only respond to the incomplete and toxic posts. Read them, Moby started it all. However, you don't comprehend this. internet whacko? it's ok for you to lash out? What a hypocrite. I only respond to incomplete, toxic responses. Its true. Your funny.
  4. I find your inability to understand my posts truly disturbing. The labour strike is directly related to my posts. If you can't figure that out, nobody can help you. I was not attacking anyone. I wanted advice how to proceed, instead, I got several members obsessed that I was a Lawyer. Mobey was wrongfully linking a post from another site, addressing an unreported, sudden death of a worker. Once again, convinced that I was a Lawyer. He also thought I was another previous member returning under another name. Comparing my posts with his. Just paranoid, obsessive behaviour. Read the latest posts. They are attacking me. Some of the seniors here feel they can post anything. When they are wrong, they can't accept it. Anyone who challenges your incorrect assessment of facts gets a "poor reputation". Big Deal. If poor reputations were based on incomplete and wrong assessments, you would all be given poor reputations. Other members have here e-mailed me stating that most seniors here are sensitive about Lawyers investigating through this site. There was nothing presented that would have lead to this assessment. Mobey was instructing other members to be aware and not post. Paranoid behaviour. However, I accept your apology.
  5. "Its unknown why he included a link about the strike itself, to give some background on the strike I suppose. Oddly, the story he links to is almost a year old" If you were aware of your environment, you would know that the strike lasted 1.5 years, closing the Paramedic Academy indefinately. However, both you and Mobey were convinced I was a Lawyer investigating Paramedics. Very paranoid. However, isn't paranoia a psychotic disorder characterized by delusions of persecution with or without grandeur, often strenuously defended with apparent logic and reason. Extreme, irrational distrust of others
  6. Just pointing out the wrong assessments made. Your previous reponses have been tainted with errors. Most likely a reflection of your Paramedic duties. Mobey was even contacting the Licencing Boards here. Quite obsessive and a little disturbing.
  7. British Columbia Paramedic student granted full refund because of 2009 labour strike. The 3,500 CUPE 873 members, who had been on strike since April 1, were seeking improved staffing levels, wage parity with other emergency response workers and a multi-year contract Read more: http://www.cbc.ca/canada/british-columbia/story/2009/04/10/bc-paramedics-talks.html#ixzz17dLMtrM9
  8. Just standing up to Moby and his friend. Both fear my posting. It wasn't just about forgeting the protocol. It was his attempts to misrepresent that they were EMR protocols. Then he misrepresented covering them in class. It is really the obstruction and efforts to cover his tracks. Read the postings. Both Mobey and his friend got heated about my posting. I think I hit a nerve. I think there is a history there. Read the postings. Both Mobey and his friend got heated about my posting. I think I hit a nerve. I think there is a history there.
  9. Thats not entirely true. There are members taking this discussion too personally. Read the responses Mosbey's id dishonnest: "From where I sit it looks like you might just be lining some lawyers pockets to stand on a soap box for a little while". Look at some of these posts. Prettey paranoid. Just can't take someone responding to their posts.
  10. The protocol presented during the trauma exam addressed a prone patient with noisy breathing. The patient had a fractured hip, c-spine issues, tib/fib fracture with moderate bleeding. I had one helper. However, the exam required the student to use a sternal/spinal grip and roll to a partial lateral. The second helper would apply a modified jaw thrust, assess the airway, suction if necessary, measure and insert an OPA. The patient would then be lowered back to the prone position and the primary would be completed ect. The examinor thought it would require three trained helpers. The exam was the first time this was ever seen.
  11. The exam was the first time this protocol was seen. Even the Instructor had no idea how to complete it. The call was a prone trauma patient with noisy breathing. He felt it required three trained Paramedics. However, I had only one helper. 1) The first was to use a sternal/spinal grip and roll the prone patient to a partial lateral position 2) The second was to apply a modified jaw thrust 3) The third was to assess the airway, measure and insert an OPA and reasses. The patient would be lowered back to the prone position, sandbags applied and the primary would be completede Ect.... It was crazy to think anyone could approach this with only one helper.
  12. PCP Instructors have an obligation to exhibit exemplary behaviour in order to preserve the integrity of the industry. Paramedics is an important and learned profession. As members of this profession, PCP Instructors are expected to exhibit the highest standards of honesty and integrity. PCP Instructors have a direct and vital impact on the quality of life for all people. Accordingly, the services provided by PCP Instructors require honesty, impartiality, fairness, and equity, and must be dedicated to the protection of the public health, safety, and welfare. PCP Instructors must perform under a standard of professional behaviour that requires adherence to the highest principles of ethical conduct. The Paramedic Academy owes a duty of care, and I believe has performed below this standard of care. Ordinary reasonable care is not the minimum for Paramedic Instructors. EMA Licencing and the Emergency and Health Services Act should have a process in place that requires PCP Instructors to report public safety issues immediately, and without undue delay. I am not convinced that the Act allows EMA Licencing to learn about these ignored public safety concerns. A process must be developed that would ensure these public safety issues are reported.

  14. It was a combination of skills to address airway issues. However, the protocol is irelevant. The fact that it was not taught in class is serious.
