Patient discharged on oxycodone for post op Pain and we were called to take patient to hospital for AMS.
What on earth was their chief complaint???Transporting a person to the hospital because they witnessed a car accident. Meanwhile, the people actually involved in the accident were not injured at all and didn't even need police assistance. Minor damage.
There cc was it looked painful 😂
Anxiety/Panic attack. So dumb the nurses even laughed as we told em.
I wonder what the Supervisor's response would of been if I replied with a "Response Declination" for Crew/Scene Safety as;Not mine but one of the BLS crews I was working with one day:
They got a run to transport from Hospital A to Hospital B lockdown unit: 23 y/o, male, transvestite, Vampire who was 19 months pregnant. Every crew that heard that made it to 1 of the hospitals to "help the crew" check the patient out.
My partner commented he "didn't look pregnant", my answer was: "what is the gestational period for Transvestite vampires". She didn't know, and the ED charge nurse wouldn't look it up for us.
Last year I transported someone who witnessed a a pretty wild rollover (with only minor injuries)…she had a status asthma exacerbation and we ended up going back emergent and giving a dose of epi plus the usual treatments.
Don't do it at all. Always know there is help and anyone know Matter how hard can get into a better position. I have lost friends to suicide and want everyone to know help can be found.Effective way to kill yourself, but do it at home
