  1. I'd like to hear other people's opinions on this. I ran this call about 7 hours ago at the private service I work for... A call comes in from a nursing home that we have a contract with. A 70ish male has fallen face first out of his wheelchair. He's got a good sized hematoma on his forehead, front and center. Staff reports that the patient is awake and alert to his normal status, is not actively bleeding, and is not mentally altered beyond his regular dementia. The patient is now sitting in his wheelchair again and the hematoma is bandaged. We are dispatched emergency to this call.
  2. I have had female partners in the past and have seen others in this predicament, but haven't had the problem myself (my wife was cool about it). One thing I have seen done in order to assuage any fears the Mrs. (or Mr.) has is, after explaining the problem and getting your partners permission, to introduce them. Bring your wife to the station or, better yet, see if can go out for a meal together & make it a night out. Get your partner to bring her spouse, boyfriend, et al. if she can. From what I've seen, after the spouse gets to know the partner, they usually realize that there's not
  3. Just found this on cnn.com... http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/crime/200...ic.punched.koco
  4. When in doubt, blame EMS... http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/news/story?id=3643696 MOSCOW -- Russian hockey legend Igor Larionov says the death of rising star Alexei Cherepanov is "unacceptable" and has asked the Continental Hockey League's majority owner to hold an emergency meeting about the matter. Alexei Cherepanov, the top-ranked European player in the 2007 draft, was the Rangers' first-round pick that year. Larionov, who helped Russian businessman Alex Medvedev found the league and sits on the KHL's board of directors, told ESPN.com he was flying to Russia on Thursday and hoped
  5. "Shakin' the Blues" by Screamin' Cheetah Wheelies...one of the best one hit wonders of the 90's. It was in my head all 24 hrs of my last shift.
  6. From "Anchorman".... "I'm going to punch you in the ovary" "You are a smelly pirate hooker" "Why don't you go back to your home on Whore Island?" Possibly one of the finest achievements in American cinema since "Citizen Kane", "The Godfather", and "Dude, Where's My Car?"... :headbang:
  7. Just watched a little of the "Publicity Hound" episode on nbc.com. Good stuff...award winning acting... :wink: ...and in the "where are they now?" file, I saw Kevin Tighe (Roy DeSoto) on "Law & Order: SVU" as the pedophile of the week the other day. Good to know he's still working. I wonder where Randolph Mantooth is these days?
  8. The good lord has answered my prayers and transferred me to another shift starting in 2 weeks! My new partner is somebody I've run with before and get along swimmingly with. The guy taking my spot actually asked to be assigned to Mr. Abrasive, thinking he'll be able to get along with him. He 3rd rode with us the other day & it looks like he really might. They seemed to get on pretty well. God help him!
  9. I wish this guy would not speak to me. The only thing that comes out his stinking halitosis laced smoke hole is smart ass comments & insults.
  10. He just might end up in that body bag, because our last shift sucked. Not because of the calls we received, but because he is a giant assbag. There's just no other way I can put it. He decided to let loose with every insult he could; my age, my weight, even what brand of vehicle I drive; him thinking the entire time that he was being charming and amusing. Even after I told him he's not funny and he should shut the hell up, he kept on hammering away at me. I didn't want to do it because I don't want to be known as a rat, but I caught him on a non patient care (but serious nonetheless)
  11. "Fear is Never Boring" by The Bears and/or The Raisins. I hear it in my head every shift I work. If you've never heard either band, it's worth your time to check 'em out.
  12. I don't know if they do convo, but they are the 911 service for the entire city of Atlanta. If you're looking for hardcore big city EMS, Grady is one of the best places in the country to do it. According to what I saw on CNN, they're the busiest trauma center in the U.S. Sanjay Gupta (from CNN) is one of the trauma surgeons there. However, Grady is having some serious money problems due to the staggering number of indigent patients they treat. They're being taken over by a new board of directors and turned into a non-profit. That usually means layoffs. You might want to read up on 'em
  13. Well, I got through a whole 24 hr. shift with this guy without him saying anything patently offensive or remarkably stupid, aside from his liberal & dated use of the word "homey" and his excessive affectation of the Gary Cole Office Space voice (yeeeaah...riiight...we're not gonna do thaaat). Apparently, he either realized that he was being a wanker or perhaps he read my original post. Maybe somebody else in the company said something to him. As I said in the first post, it's not his patient care that's an issue. We had an 86 y.o. woman full of fluid to the apex yesterday and he handle
  14. I'm on my way in now to start my shift and will be stopping by CVS for that notepad. I'll report back tomorrow & tell you what happened.
