Dear staff

Posted

I applaud your response, but if you ever lift a human that is obviously too dazed to lift themselves, OR MEDICATE THEM FOR PAIN, before I get there to assess, I will happily, and privately berate you for it.

I sent out an all staff email applauding the staff for being awesome at responding to an adult who fell, but I laced that puppy with "don't you dare do this again" in the nicest way possible.

I would have loved to have seen my face, though, when I got on scene and was told all of this.

Is the staff person okay?

And what did "they" give him or her?

AH! Besides the fact that YOU are the medical professional and the only one who should be giving meds, sometimes the nurse is the only one who knows about a staff member's health.

And YIKES!

They are fine. I had them seen at an ED, however, since she had back pain and wasn't ambulating well at ALL. But she's fine.

They gave Advil. Which, honestly, why give a med that's going to take a long time to even help?

I wish I knew about my staff members' health, they gather health info on everyone and then ship it off to central office. Because? That's not convenient at all!!!!
