First Responder Call Goes Bad
My first EMS call was to a man that was coughing out of control. When I arrived at the mans home his wife took me into their living room where the man stood coughing. When the second First Responder arrived (the Chief) he asked me what the problem was and I told him the man standing was coughing uncontrolable and I gave him some medication. The Chief stated, "you do not give medication to anyone. You may assist someone in taking their medication but we are not doctors and do not prescribe medication. He is not coughing now, what what medication did you gave him?" I stated, "I gave him some laxatives." I added, "look at him I think he's afraid to cough".

I don't know if that's just dang funny or to take it seriously. There are some characters I've worked with that just might try something like this.If you don't do it RIGHT today, when will you have time to do it over? (Hall of Fame basketball player/coach John Wooden)
