I have been an EMT for a little over a year. I consider myself above average in how seriously I take my job. I put a lot of stock in pain management, being an EMT for now, I don't have much to work with but I'm quick to call for an AEMT or MEDIC to deal with substantial pain. Unless it's an obvious minor injury I take my patients pain level very seriously and ask for additional resources as necessary. Knowing that pain relief plays a big part in recovery guides my philosophy on this. I've gotten a few rolling eyes, but I feel if I can make my patient more comfortable for 20 minutes with the possibility of improving outcome I've done my job. Thoughts?
