So I should stop posting in that thread now?

If it stays civil and on topic, there is no problem. Make it uncivil or off topic at your own risk.

The problem is I make tons of civil arguments that others find uncivil for no more reason than they disagree with it.

I can't say I blame them for some of their views. That thread went downhill fast

It did, I agree, but I don't think there was anyone in there advocating that our education is equivalent, I've yet to see anyone on here that posts regularly advocate that our education in the EMS world is sufficient....

The "they need to lose their egos" line is what really got me. Nurses freak when we "impede" on their sandbox... It got so bad here that they tried to eliminate ER Paramedic techs until the emergency physician group put their foot down and said they wanted paramedics as techs and decided that they'd oversee them since the nurses got so dang grumpy about it.

Love you Chase :D

When I was in medic school the RNs refused to supervise us for a while. My state classifies paramedics as providers, and something happened that resulted in the state ems department and state nursing department getting into a fight. The end result was the nursing board saying nurses couldn't supervise us because a provider needed to be supervised by another provider. So we followed the RNs around, but a MD had to supervise anytime we started an IV or gave meds or anything like that. It was a huge mess until the nursing board stopped sulking.

So my brilliant self picked up OT working as a proctor for the Medic Class's NREMT Psychomotor exam tomorrow.

Didn't realize I set myself up for a 20.5 hour long shift starting tomorrow until today... 0800 tomorrow to 0430 on Thursday... First 8.5 is proctoring, last 12 is on the truck.

It's gonna suck but it'll be worth it, need to save some money for Canada and they want me to be more active in education so I can be a preceptor for the next round of interns. Slowly moving my way up :)
At least you'll get to have some relaxing time in a statio....oh wait you run pure SSM. Nevermind. :ph34r:

Opening of the sturgeon spearing season is this weekend on Lake Winnebago. Ice conditions are variable...not too good on the west side (my area).
I am on for 36 hrs starting at 8:00 pm Friday night.

Good thing we drilled on cold water rescues and hypothermic patients last month.
I predict at least 2 people will go swimming by accident this weekend.

Fully equipped stations with NO SSM FTW.

We only leave for calls.

Sitting on street corners is for chumps. :)

That's for sure. I work hybrid SSM, and I hate those street corner posts. Its stupid in a semi rural area like where I am. Each station might run 3 calls a day. But say the station next district over catches a call. Statistically speaking, that district is LEAST likely to produce another call while they are on their first call.

So pull me out of my district to post halfway between my station and theirs....to put me far away from my station, which, in theory is much more likely to catch a call right now.

Ah come on...how can you not love getting woken up at 2am to go post on a street corner because the next station over got an IFT to Timbuktu and you are now responsible for covering their area and yours...

Lol no just the group discount for being in EMS. It knocks like 4 bucks off. I had it written down somewhere but I can't find it now.

Ok I was about to have to hit you with the secret ban button for violation of rules and laws.

I love hiking in a small trail to get to a patient, package them all up and hike them out. That's probably gonna be the highlight of my day

Got a lady with spontaneous vaginal haemmorhage, um yeah ....

Ooh, I had one who had a hemorrhage secondary to sex in the back seat of a car that was driving down the highway.
Hit a bump...tore the vaginal wall. Those were some huge blood clots.

And the man was pretty calm, given what just happened.


Did they figure out what happened to your patient?

Sorry

Hey, I would like to publicly apologize for being a total prick to a few CL's and a new member. I've had a very rough week, and something just set me off. So Aidely and FFEMT, I'm sorry for what i said earlier. I know you (FFemt) and I don't exactly see eye to eye. Next time I will just not post at all when I'm having a bad week.
Pappaly, I'm sorry for flipping out on you for not using the search button, this forum is a great place to ask questions, and I my response was that of an :censored::censored::censored::censored::censored::censored::censored:.

FFemt, I'm still going to bust your chops and that joke you said earlier was great :D
I hope you can all forgive me.


Regards,
Andrew.

Vaginal bleeding? Hardly an emergency, but it is something that needs to be evaluated. If only OB/Gyns had clinic days (actually... if only they didn't!).


By chance, did she have this bleeding about 28 days or so ago?

What if the pt has hemophilia?
