Wotan you know where I am coming from when I say this.
I have watched people die, alone, in pain, with only medical staff with them after a major trauma, and its been two or three hours since they came in
but they had no contact details for their families.
I also seen people with ICE in their phones being taken off mountains and being met by their families who were with them for their finals hours.
I know which one I want - ICE it is.
This is one thing you don't have to be paranoid about. Health staff see an ICE and they will call it. Its only noted in your nursing and medical
notes as next of kin IF it is confirmed as being so. Till then its just a number to call.
Believe me, some paras and techs I know are more than happy to spend an evening on ATS . . . . . .
