    Contest closing times

    I've subscribed to this forum but always miss the contest closing times. It is not always possible to get Internet access and there may be the issue of different country/ different time zone. Is anyone else having the same problem?

    [Closed] De-stressing Contest. Win a paracord bracelet!

    When I finish work I destress by going down to my local gym for about 1hour. The gym also has a spa so that helps relax me after my work out. Once returning home from the gym, I call any of my best friends to see if they are free. If not, then it's dinner and tv time. If there isn't anything...

    Used auto injectors, what's a good way to safety them?

    I have 2 of the new style "jext" Epi pens. The needle automatically retracts after administration, so when you "pull it out" of the patients leg no needle is visible. You know the dose has been administrated because the pen "clicks" on admin and you can hear the needle retracting

    Medic alert tags

    I have spoken to the top manager that I can possibly go to and was told "no bracelets for infection control reasons & no necklaces as we have a no jewellery policy. Necklaces can also be broken by patients" There are no exceptions!! So at the moment.... I'm not wearing any form of medic alert...

    Unions for EMS

    I'm not looking to start an argument!!! I'm a union steward & think that unions are great for the workplace. I've seen good things that the union has done. Yes.... There are some bad things, but good out weighs bad. That's just my opinion

    Asthma question

    Agreed. That's the last thing you need of your having an asthma attack & I would be really angry if you tries to do that to me during an attack

    Poll for Female members only

    I like this forum. The last EMT forum I was part of (UK ambulance) were really mean to me. I asked them what a phrase meant (as I'm autistic and didn't understand), one of the administrators had a go at me for asking and said that I can't use an illness as an excuse for asking pathetic...

    Unions under attack

    I strongly disagree with this statement. Just because a company has a union doesn't mean it sucks. Not everybody likes unions, but being a senior union steward in my work place, I've seen a lot of good things my union has done. I'd there weren't unions, there would be a lot of inequalities at...
