    Off-Duty Response

    I think I would safely head to the restaurant. Since I'd be protected under the good Samaritan act. So I would have nothing to worry about as long as I stay in my scope of practise. Also I would just go back to the fundamental basics while I wait for EMS since I wouldn't really have any use...

    How do you decide where to transport?

    In my city there are 4 hospitals and one children's hospital.One hospital has a cardiac ward so, most serious cardiac calls go straight to that hospital unless the patient is under 18...all other calls the dispatcher decides which hospital to send the patient based on hospital wait times.
