EMS cliche #2

“Don’t walk any patients. Always bring the gurney to them.”

I’m sorry, Homeless Guy Who Wants a Sandwich is fucking walking, as is Crazy Guy Looking for Med Refill. So is Lady with the ‘Flu.

If you want to carry them, I’m not going to stop you. But I’m not going to help you either.

  1. Amen Brother. These people are abusing the system and people want to carry them. You only have one back and when it’s stuffed, it’s stuffed forever. It doesn’t mean you have to be rude, just professional and appropriate. If I injure my back carrying a sick patient, then so be it. I won’t put my back at risk and endanger my families future for people who mostly shouldn’t be going to Emergency in the first place.
