    Are you sure it was apples and not lemons?

    I don’t get the reference, but I can picture this on Benny Hill.

    SOB: Shortness of Breath.
    Provoke: Find out whether any external factor such as movement is making the situation better or worse.
    Associated Chest Pain: This will elicit descriptions of the patient’s pain in and around chest area.
    Sputum production (color): Is the patient coughing up sputum. Mucus-like sputum can be an indication of infection or any problem in respiratory system
    Talking & Tiredness: Is the patient talking with you? Is he/she feeling tired? If the patient is not talking or responding to your voice, perform CPR immediately.
    Exacerbation: Check whether the condition of the patient is worsening with time.

    Sitting in my office with radio on on the desk

    Dispatch: unit *** uncoded medical mid 50s male south transit center respond channel 5.

    Unit: ETOH?

    Dispatch: (dead key) probably.


    And yes it was a frequent flyer ETOH when they arrived in my ED.

    Overheard a radio call on the scanner BLS to Hosp. for an elderly Pt trip and fall
    The emt sounded brand new at radio reports
    Hospital asked if the Pt is on any blood thinners to which the emt replies:
    Yes, he took 4mg of Tylenol

    During a transport to the e.r. I couldn't get a hold of the radio nurse for roughly 10 minutes. Meanwhile another unit was also attempting to get a hold of them. The cct nurse on the other unit ended up giving me a whole radio thinking I was the radio nurse

    I have had other units give me radio reports; because they thought I was the hospital; When I finally got in touch with the hospital I gave them both reports. It confuses the hospital; but keeps a crew from getting yelled at.
