Well, it sure sounded like it.

I work in a *** hole ER in the middle of the ghetto where I sometimes go vomit because of the smell of the shot *** homeless people that crowd our lobby when Marta stops!!!It turns into a homeless shelter where everyone has chect pns or is suicidal thinking they can get a free ride if they say suicide or chest pain and get a free bed and food for the night.... that *** stopped in march... The MD's are kicking them homeless crack heads out the door before they can sign in. we should have been doing that months ago..... the homeless people are the ones ***ing up your paychecks. and when you are sitting in the ER for hours??? its cause our beds are full of ho0meless people begging for food saying they want to kill themselves because it guarantees they got that bed. so sit out there and vomit and have chest pn…. some homeless man has your bed cussing out the staff wanting a blanket and food!!

This is another old debate, as evident by the dated article. Seems difficult for medics to make the transition from field to hospital practice, and understandably since the two are very different. In my experience the successful ones were simply tired of those long 24-48 hour shifts and really ready for something different, or working those last few years for drop pay maximizing. It's really more of a personality issue, and less of a true practice paradigm trap. 

As the OP states, medics work under their medical director's protocols. And those do not matter in a hospital, since every facility has it's own profundity in volumes of policies, procedure guidelines, and job descriptions. That's why even physicians and APC's have to request and be approved for privileges, since they all differ between hospitals, clinic systems, even departments. 

 As an ER supervisor for several years at a very busy southwest intercity level one teaching facility I encountered this personnel issue quite a lot. That culture had more to do with medics and fire employees, who were typically older men, taking orders from young female RN's. Certainly not implying that's the issue here, but it sounds along the same personal lines, and again less of a real practice issue.  

I think you are correct sir!!

I'm just a stupid paramedic, but I've had to gently tell a RN to stop! she was ***ing up and was praised for it

Query: Professionalism.

I'm a little confused as to your agenda here. You speak of wanting teamwork yet the vast majority of your posts seem to be more focused on telling the nurses (on a nursing site no less) how stupid we are, how sloppy we are, how lazy we are and how much better you are at everything. How exactly is that promoting teamwork?
