Anyone got good fixes for a foul smell that just won't leave a room? It smells like a mouse or something died in the ventilation system, but I can't find the source... and airing the room out for a few days, Lysol, baking soda, and the usual other fixes haven't worked.

Ah they joys of having to move a 300 pound patient from hospital bed to stretcher without a draw sheet while being careful not to dislodge their leaking rectal tube.

Gotta love those calls. The smell of CDT just wont go away.

I think that was the biggest challenge of the day. She was on an air mattress and anytime we tried to roll her she would slide. Then grab on to my arm so tightly a nurse had to pry her off. And let's not forget the poo.

I've been trying to memorize more medical Spanish lately. I can understand patients and talk with them if everything's OK, but I forget how to speak Spanish under pressure.

I've always found it funny that the EMS pocket guides have in-depth questions written in spanish. That's great, but they're no good if I can't figure out their response. lol

Just got back from a cancelled mission... only a half hour drive to the station and a half hour home :rolleyes: (plus the time spent planning...)

If any of you outdoors type folks have considered getting one of those SPOT GPS Beacons foe the "wonderful" safety it claims to offer... take it from someone with a lot of experience who has seen then in (un)action... DON'T WASTE THE CASH!!! <_< Take the money that the unit costs and the annual cost to maintain the subscription and invest in a good compass and other gear, navigation classes, survival classes, and wilderness medical classes!
