So tonight I was called out of my basement apartment to front of the house because the older gentleman who lived there had fallen. When I got there, he had no pulse and was not breathing, and he was frozen cold. It has been about -10 here today and we have no idea when he had fallen out outside (whether it was today or last night).
When the paramedics got there, they debated whether to do CPR and they did end up doing it, but he didn't make it.
Odviously I am quite shaken up over this. I know that there was nothing else I could do (unless I was there when he had fallen) but it was just something very unexpected and I'm surprised at how fast I used my assessment skills and relayed information to the paramedics.
I just needed to get this off my chest, as I already have anxiety issues and am trying to keep myself calm over this situation knowing that there was nothing else that I could have done. Just a bad situation overall.
