The main topic this week was whether or not we can learn from those BS call we get in EMS. The flu’s, the stubbed toe, the frequent flyer. We also talked about refusals and how they relate to these calls as well. While we jumped around a bit, we agreed that while patients are not our guinea pigs or live training models, the BS call can allow us opportunities to assess our patients in a less stressed environment so when that true emergency confronts us we have our own system, our own rhythm of assessment that will keep us on track when the real shit hits the fan.
