Burn out can happen to all medics. I should know. I have spent the last 2 years with time off. Look around you do you see a friend in need? do you have a co worker who is acting out side the norm? BUrn out can happen at any stage in the game: it doesn't just strike veterans. Some tips that will help is have a hobby, make freinds out side of your department, find something that relaxes you. Most important take time for you and your family. We all know this is difficult with low pay you tend to work overtime but ask your self is it worth it believe me its not. There are people who can help talk to them they are not hard to find. This is a serious problem in EMS to little of of to go around.
