Uncertainty, not just for the individual requesting assistance, but for the crew as well. You see, for every dispatch I receive, I can be sure of only two things: I am going to a location, and there may or may not be a patient there.

  • Why Is The Misuse Of Ambulance

    To name a few issues: patients receive delayed care, overstaffing is needed to deal with these issues; people with real emergencies have to wait. It is hard on morale for EMS providers after years of training and education to be regarded as a driver only. And it is an inappropriate use of EMS talent.

I learned about the types of knots that were used to secure the stitches and the importance of counting how many sharps there was before and after the procedure. I actually assisted multiple times throughout my four days in the emergency department.…

  • Ethical Issues In Emergency Management

    Emergency workers are considered a special breed of humans; they are those who are willing to take extra sacrifices to potentially save the life of a total stranger. While commonly, the monetary reward for those who attempts such feats is miniscule, the act of selfless service is more than reward enough for those who are willing to answer the call.
