Interesting information though.
I worked a cardiac arrest a few years ago, probably mid-50s female. By the time we got her into the ambulance, we had a rhythm, good pulses and a reasonable BP, however she was not breathing on her own yet. We transported to the closest facility (about 5 minutes away) arriving in pretty much the same condition.
Before the primary Paramedic was finished giving the report, due to the ER staff's inattention, the patient was back in cardiac arrest (unknown how long before they noticed) and pronounced dead before we had the unit clean up. How exactly does that reflect poorly on us (EMS)?
Your EMT. Their paramedic. But you're doing the work. Got it.Quote:
We do the work as it is our EMT's who do the work not theirs we just get the County to pay for their benefits and wages.
Then why did you ask?Quote:
You have to see our interactions to know what I'm talking about.....
Really Jay, while the question may have been simplistic, the reality is the circumstances involved are quite complicated. There really is much more involved and valid concerns than to just easily feign this off as just union vs non-union as has been mentioned.
I don't know where you get the idea that someone is saying that your district and union don't work together, because I haven't seen that in the comments here. Although you did say that you see the big picture and the union president doesn't, which can be taken out of context too.
The question is simple, the circumstances aren't.
