Patients Should Not Be Dumped Off Stretchers Onto Floors But…..

EMS If you follow social media on EMS at all you may have seen the video with the paramedic flipping a patient off the stretcher. Have you ever been in the same situation as this paramedic? While using the excuse of “snapping” does not support this medics actions and while he was 100% wrong in doing this to the patient. Isn’t there a “but” someplace in this video?

Take a listen to this weeks episode to see what I mean and be sure to leave your comments below.

Should We Lie To Patients?

When your patient asks if he is having a heart attack, do you tell him, no matter how bad the 12 lead looks? Have you ever avoided these quesions, told white lies or just plain lied in what you thought was the best interest to the patient? What do you think? When does a patients stress level or anticipated reacition influence what or how you tell them?
