Ok, sorry that is just ridiculous--First of all it does'nt take 15 to 20 minutes to shave a person's groin (maybe you don't know how--someone could show you--and I am not trying to be funny here), but it does save time in a life-threatening situation--which is what is usually the case when a patient is going from the ER to the lab---Come on, can't we just work together without all the complaints and irrational ones at that--It doesn't take a RANT about all the things you have to do to get your point across, especially if your argument is unconvincing and just plain well, silly, to be honest AND you imply that WE don't also have a lot to do and can't, as you put it, "wield" a razor--PS...The RT IS usually the cath lab tech and there is a whole lot going on. ...sigh...Just do your job and get over yourself--Really? Complaining over helping out with a two minute shave (possibly less)...Whatever happened to teamwork...:) Working in the ER I would imagine you get asked to do a lot more difficult things than this and guess what, you do it don't you? You do if you still work there I bet.
Oh, and the reason you probably get all those calls is because the DOCTOR is also breathing down our necks so check the attitude--It isn't with the right person obviously...Sorry, I guess THIS was a little "rant" of my own, maybe because I would and have done it and don't see your problem over such a small thing..
