Hey guys/girls I'm a medic in mass for a city fd. Considering relocating to nyc. I'm going to be 34 so I figured fd NY ems is out. Plus the pay scale is depressing. Tell me about this hospital based system? Pay scale, scope of practice, benefits etc
i have full sleeves, my chest, stomach and knuckles tattooed. i have never had a problem and i work in multiple towns as a paramedic.
you'd be surprised how many older people have them.
for those who say they are judging your peers and coworkers because they have tattoos, shame on you...
working a 24, 1st call of the night. 46 y/o male, etoh, fell into a fire 20%bsa 3rd and 2nd degree burns on his right arm and hand. im just jealous im not out having fun with my friends and family hahah
my very first day, my first run as an emt-b. i had never used a monitor before and i put the bp cuff on backwards. it inflated right off the guys arm. my partner just burst out laughing. he is now my rescue capt at the fd and still breaks my balls over it. we are also super good friends. still funny
hahaha went to a nursing home for a sob. nurse states " i cant get her stats past 88% " pt is on nrb 2lpm. i pulled it off the pt. she says " ahh i feel better now thank you "
the nurse is my general managers sister in law so i bit my tongue
gotta love it
i honestly didn't think she had any teeth. i went to suction, thinking she was gargling some fluid and noticed something strange blocking her airway. i shouldve put her in a ked board and sat her up but she had no other complaints and her lungs were diminished but clear in the house
