I am currently an ambulance driver for a private company and will soon be an EMT in a few weeks. We mostly transport patients from nursing homes and rehab centers. There has been plenty of times where I have been frustrated by the employees of those facilities. Sometimes we get called to a nursing home to take a nonemergent patient to the ED. There was a time when we would approach the unresponsive patient whose vitals were all abnormal. We would then ask the CNA or LPN how long they have been in that condition. Then they said, "Oh, about 2 or 3 days." Are you serious?! The patient has UNRESPONSIVE with crazy vitals for that long?! All I could think to myself was "Wow" and we took the patient to the ED. That same situation happened a week later at a different facility. Did they actually receive any medical training at all?
