    No coffee. No soda. No energy drinks. No caffeine pills. Occasionally tea. Just don't like coffee. And I'm a county paramedic, I don't make enough to buy energy drinks.

    Yeah I'm in the background portion. So who knows how long that will take. Could be one month... Could be one year.

    Is it bad that I'm hoping COVID-19 will help accelerate my DMAT application processing 😅

    Scheduling software?

    Telestaff: I like it. Works well. Aladtec: works well as well. Trauma soft: don't touch the thing with a 10 foot pole. Zolls scheduler was pretty good too when I used it. From a supervisor standpoint I'd say telestaff is best. Aladtec has some limitations in time keeping. Only allows...

    Outside EMS?

    I work too much. But when not at work I'm either studying (though I do this at work mostly), playing with my kiddos, spending time with my wife, or sleeping. Someday I'll have hobbies again but right now my family is my focus of spare time.

    Second to last day of whole 30. So looking forward to pizza... and burritos... and ice cream. But the horde of candy bars that I have collected from the hospitals over the past 30 days. Really don't care about them.

    Yup. Took a year from application to conditional offer. And got an email from my point of contact saying he sent it back to me for me to update. Helpless is how I felt. Luckily he stopped around 1am and slept till 6. Drank more water then slept till 9. I have a feeling it is worse than...

    My poor kiddo keeps vomiting. It's going to be a long night. Wish I could make him feel better. But he's a trooper, does his best to get it in his bucket.

    Bleh... Filled out my e-QIP background check this morning. Took a nap and woke up in the middle of it remembering I forgot to include a part time job I had a few years ago. Now just waiting for an email back on how to fix that.

    Who is your company hiring???

    Does your service bill for transport? If so you may want to have them make sure he is not on the banned list for Medicare and Medicaid.

    Well filled out the background check paperwork. Time to see how long that takes. I'll probably have my bachelor's degree before I hear from them again.

    3YO Male, Sick

    I would say that there isn't anything special about doing an ej vs an io. I just was curious if there was any special advice for doing them on a pediatric. But as I said initially, I'd probably look for one if the kiddo deteriorated for about two seconds.

    I was asking more outside of the scenario in general terms.
