The other day at my agency gig it was really slow and I was bored (ER) so I took the next ambulance to come in. Supposedly an unresponsive overdose. 4 staff nurses were sitting chatting at the nursing station and none of them got up and came in to help me get the patient checked in and settled.
Fortunately the tech and 2 paramedic students did come in and help. This happened 2 times on this day. Fortunately both patients woke up okay in the end and went home. And when everyone ordered out later in the day I bought the tech his dinner when he said he didn't have any money.
What a bunch of schmucks. At least I had a cool, smart, nice doc. and a great tech and students.
I have been going to this place as agency for 3 years. They seem to like me okay, but one crew still treats me like I don't exist. The other crew is much warmer and more helpful
God was watching out for me and my patients
