The PLS of BLS.
So I occasionally ride with an individual in our ambulance who has been on the crew for quite a while. (5years or so) anyway I am still the new guy although we do have another guy who is newer than me. I have seen this partner put on a C-collar wrong 2 time. The first time she did not put the chin strap up and the mask slid over the PT face, there was another EMT there who say it as well we tried to fix it best we could enroute. Then the last call I was on I got called away to tend to another PT, the driver of the other car, and I helped get this girl PT#1 out of the car her C-collar was wrong as well. Unfortunatly I had to go attend to the other PT before I could intervene. I am bothered by this because, #1 She is an (more) experienced EMT, and I am the new guy and can see that it is wrong. #2 I am concerned for PT care when I am not riding with her. I have not seen any thing other than this, but I keep thinking if she cannot do this correctly and see something is wrong, what other things is she missing when it comes to assessments, trending, etc. I mean last night we had a class and were talking about Peds calls where children will compensate and compensate then crash, which is scary to think about esp, if someone doesnt recognize the symptoms right away. I dont mean to be derogatory to her or anyone else, but it bothers me.
