Hello everyone I want to share with you all a tragic series of unfortunate events that changed the life of 18 year old female forever. 0620 am rual EMS service was dispatched for a 18year old female, who passed out in the shower presenting with slured speach drooping face,numbness on the right side and inability to move that side. A recently certified paramedic, is not phased and states the fallowing " your just stressed, young people do not get strokes". Vitials taken, everything seems normal BP just a little high, no medications or allergies, only hormonal birth control. no code FAST started, iv or o2. Transport is a non emergent, hospitial was told she was sutiabel for triage.Not until 4 hours later was it found by the hospitial. The 18 year did have a stroke, damage was permenant. The cause prolonged use of hormonal birth control. Don't let a blunder like this happen again guys.
