EDIT: And apparently my ACLS card counts for both IV and EKG cert in Colorado :)

After working my booty off for 2 weeks at my new IFT company I got the 24 spot I wanted. That is a good thing. Bad thing is tomorrow is my son's 1st birthday party and my mother has been in town since I started the job and despite spending my first productive day off not catching up on sleep but cleaning the house and doing yard work I was priviledged enough to be told I didnt do either right and dont use my time wisely. SERIOUSLY!!!!!

When do you find out?


I have an interview for a Paramedic position with AMR at the place where I was an EMT at on Monday... should be fun.

Good luck with your interview :p And I should know in an hour or two. One way or another.

The patient hits the ground... I've seen or heard about everywhere from not even reported to lawsuits depending on the circumstances.

I am seriously getting POd at DirecTV.

Every month it seems like my DVR screws up in some way where I can't watch TV for any length of time, yet my brothers DVR in the room over NEVER has any of these problems.

I don't give a darn if it's the equipment and not DirectTV screwing up. I pay for a service and I want the darn thing to work when I'm at home.

:excl::excl::excl::excl::excl::excl:


Thankfully I have like 40 hours of saved up shows on the harddrive, so I'll just catch up on those for a bit...

Shoot me a PM if you want some help trouble shooting it (used to be a DirecTV tech).

Stepped on a patch of ice as we were loading the gurney. Somehow I ended up under the gurney holding it up like I was benching it. Fortunatly I was able to maintain some thougt process as I went down and I did not let go of the gurney which would have dropped. Our pt did not even realize what had happened, just that I had dissappeared. I ended up with a nasty goose egg on my head, a very bruised tailbone and a sprained wrist.

I see... I have heard of medics dropping patients before... the only time that they got into any trouble was when the patient was further injured... other than that... mistakes happen...
