  1. I myself have been through this....twice. I can tell you I have "retired" from EMS twice, and went back twice. My take away is that you may need a break, extended variety, but a break. Consider a LOA before quitting altogether. It has done wonders for me. I hope you can find yours. Best of luck.
  2. Indeed.com they have things like this posted several times a year.
  3. Thanks for the comments. My hope is the experience will allow me knowledge so that not everything is brand new, however, I am concerned on breaking the bad habits (not my strong point) and things I have picked up over time. As far as the clinicals go, I have never done rotation on the civilian side. Having said that, when you do service rotations do you usually stay with the same preceptor or get bounced around?
  4. I just don't know of I could do that kinda stuff lol
  5. Good luck to you as well! I'm planning on trying to stay above water by going over some acls and med dosages before it starts. Hopefully it will help
  6. Just looking for insight from those that have gone through. I'm an 8 year army medic vet and closing on 10 years as an EMT. I feel the classroom side won't be bad but what can I expect out of clinical rotation? Any surprises or do most programs keep it simple?
  7. Just wondering if anyone knows of any services, prefer private, hiring night shift part time -AEMT.
  8. How many of you go through something similar with your management? We cant get paid because you said pt walked to cot so change your narrative etc. and before long its "suggested" that you write certain things so upper management wont bring discipline down on you.
  9. Ok so I came on this side of the sight looking to see if I might stumble on some guidance but this seems like an interesting area. So I too have my issues, no clue where they came from or why. The aggression, the up and down emotions, the lack of empathy so on. Fortunately it seems that Zoloft tends to be my friend, doesnt make the issues go away but manages them. Seems the older I get the worse it becomes w/o medication.
  10. I suppose to sum it up Im leaning towards the fact that, yes, knowing what to do is part of the job, however I have seen all too often those that make it through their education only to go out into the field and be completely lost. So no, I wouldnt necessarily say its directed towards enthusiasm but more so competency. Whether you're an EMR or an ER doc the point is to e able to delivery the most accurate treatment as competently as possible and worry about nothing more than that.
  11. It was correct in its original format. I have seen plenty of those that just "do the job" and by no means does that make it ok for them to not know and be confident in the skills needed to do the job. I get your point ERDoc but we need better out of our profession....
  12. Just some personal thoughts of advice. *No matter where you go know your protocols. They will save your ass. *Dont give into pressure when dealing with a Pt. If your gut says somethings not right with your pt even if your partner says nothing is wrong, check anyway. *Seriously dont compromise your license.... mainly speaking about private services... if somethings wrong, its wrong, just this once is NOT ok....example: no o2 on a unit but supervisor pushing you to take a call *EMS is a breeding ground for drama at times. We all get sucked in at times. Just learn to dodge the majority of it *Burn out is a bitch. Learn new skills, do something, anything to keep the passion. *If your partner is a complete ass and you're miserable SPEAK UP and ask your supervisor to reassign you *If you work somewhere with good benefits, even if the pay isnt good, rethink leaving for a dollar more on the hour. Good benefits can be hard to come by *True partners have each others back. The ability to trust each other is so important I cant put it into words. *You are NOT going to save lives everyday. But by God when the time comes and a person needs you to know your s***, be able to execute
  13. Do your job....know everything you can possible know...when the day is complete let it go...when someone doubts your skill, prove them wrong. Some people believe one level of license is "better" but if you know your stuff, no matter the level, F***'em the only person who's opinion counts in the end is the patient
  14. Sounds like an egotistical ass.Things like this are reason many folks have a bad impression of what a paramedic is. Way to help improve our profession....
