Forum Asst. Chief
Did you ID yourself to the crew as a moonlighting Medic (or EMT-A)?
If it were me and you had I would have let you stay out of professional courtesy, but otherwise I would have asked you to stay out and just been sure to give you a quick run down before we left. That's what I do with PD (unless they're coming along), as well as foremans, security, teachers, etc. I don't mean shut them out as a snub, but I wouldn't want to be in the patient's shoes in a box that full.
No, it was the three (two medics and the EMT-A) and then me standing at the side door.
I asked them if I was in their way and if they'd like me to leave as I know that it can be very annoying. They said it was completely fine, though. It didn't feel right to me.
