Can I become a EMT with a bad hand?
Possibly, if you can pass the motor skills and depending on the amount of disability in your hand.

I didn’t understand your response besides you can’t write. Do you have enough dexterity/strength to help move, lift, or restrain people? If so I would lean towards you’d be able to make it work.

I’m sorry.
I thought you just posted how you can’t write or lift a large half filled cup. This led me to believe there were in fact limitations to your assist hand.
I’m not sure why your posting at this point if you have no limitations with it.
Take care

I was confused too.

@Souris your best bet is going to check with your doctor and your state EMS agency. They're the ones with the final say on if you can become an EMT.
