Speaking of dogs...
I shop mainly in this category:
BrandoEMT said:Question, I reviewed another agency's bag and I'm curious...how many tongue depressors does a person need? This bag had about 60 tongue depressors, no MCI I have ever heard of had so many pts that required fingers to be splinted. Personally I'd just use a twig or such. Oh well.
McGyver medicine?BrandoEMT said:I guess when I say personal stuff I mean what you are going to use the most. By no means am I suggesting using things such as meds or any advanced tools. I'm trying to say that a ditch bag is used mostly for personal use so you should pack a bag to that idea. But carry things that are covered under your scope of practice without Medical Director supervision. Good Samaritan Law covers a lot and as long as you don't do McGyver medicine you'll be fine.
