Cars really are for transporting people

Code 2 for abdominal pain. At 2am.

A woman in her late teens, purse in hand, meets us outside the residence with 2 other young people. She is clearly uncomfortable, but definitely able to survive without us.

“I have cysts. My friend called you guys.”

Her friend then gets in her car and follows the ambulance to the hospital.

  1. Really makes me wonder what we will have to go thru when this current generation makes decisions that have a huge affect on us. Is it that they think they will be seen more quickly because you brought them in? Do they speak triage at All ? I don’t get it.
