Flight companies lying about ETAs is so infuriating.
We have a flight company that will say yes to any call. Show up late and then figure out how to transport the patient without the equipment they said they could use/had.

Appreciated the SNF helping us get our patient on the cot. Until I had to untie the cot strap from the side rail and buckle it appropriately.

I'm *blank* years old. How did THAT happen?
Ya don't want to know... though I suspect the onset of it is quite insidious and relentless.

What have I done... got into an argument on Facebook with some dude over whether or a gold fringe on a flag means anything or not (it doesn't)

I'm finally at a point where I can say I really, really like my job. It's challenging and rewarding. I lucked into a good one.
I’m applying to some adjunct teaching jobs in the Houston area and planning certs, CE, etc. but I’ve hit a professional wall @ Creek. Need to change something. Keeping a lookout for the right answer.

You're limited by location. There's a LOT of good EMS leadership jobs out there. People are retiring and lots of dinosaurs are being forced out by changing cultures. I get hit up by a headhunter every few weeks or so. Nothing I'm particularly interested in leaving for, but it's nice to have options.

And before you ask, no. I won't share info on who the headhunting group is. They have to seek you out. You can't go to them. It's all about relationships. Network, network, network.

It is challenging, but I can’t complain too hard. A lot of why I’m still in Houston is my wife’s job and that they pay me decently well here. And there’s something to be said for assembling pay and experience first.

A few years at an agency isn't a bad thing... but you need to stop taking jobs as a medic and hoping to get promoted to a leadership spot. You need to move directly into one. It's very difficult to coach the team that you were just playing on.

I’m finding that out. Especially when the current local leadership is hand-picking their successors and leaves no room for anything
