Better Moments from 2012

Thank you for indulging me this year by clicking over here. It is a strange world I inhabit most days, and my reactions to it that I get on paper, or screen, can be a bit disturbing. Having read many of the previous years posts I came up with some of my better moments.

A career in Fire/EMS is difficult, physically demanding, heartbreaking and at times disturbing but ultimately rewarding. Those unexpected moments when you know without a doubt that you have just saved a life, or touched one in such a positive way that the person who called for help got much more than they ever expected makes all of the misery disappear.

I am fortunate to have experienced more of these moments than I deserve, and am better for it.

EMS Staffed by Nurses
Maybe i'm missing something, but what does a transfer truck have to do with community paramedicine? Regardless, i'm in Canada and there have been a number of successful projects here using blended RN/Paramedic staffing to fill physician shortages in rural communities, as well as both using both NP's and Paramedics to deliver hospital grade care…

Reading these comments makes me laugh and be angry both. The rig you see pictured, is not used as a 911 ambulance. This rig is used for RN and CCT transfers. I work for this company, and yes we do have RNs that fill street shifts on the paramedic ambulances. When in these trucks there…

Notice the company name: Stat TRANSFERS. Trying to insinuate that I'm insulted because nurses are doing horizontal taxi runs is specious at best. And for the record, the hole being filled by CP programs is a hole that nursing created. Tough shit if they feel threatened.

Paramedics who are not RNs would hate the idea as…
