I am curious if there are any other people on here that are EMS/health care employees. I am a paramedic and i think it would be cool to get to know some others in the same field to talk about stuff that others who are not in the field would probably not really care about. Hope to see some of you soon.

I just realized i should probably include anyone in the medical field just so I dont hurt anyones feelings.

Brother!!!! Darn skippy there is! I was wondering that myself. I'm a paramedic in Toronto, on nights and "ATS'ing" Between calls. I thought I was alone until one of my partners turned the am/fm to Coast2coast am one night and we got talking. Thanks for the post!!! Keep safe and think of all the overtime we'll get in 2012 :p !! I think there's more medics on to this stuff than we think!!

I have been a paramedic for 16 years, with a critical care endorsement for the last 7 of those. I'm only working limited part time at the moment due to a medical issue.
Currently in Montana, but originally from South Carolina, and have worked in both places.

Who DOESNT love pink floyd?!!!

...So THAT'S what they're spraying??!!!

NDM-1 ? ... Anybody ?? Anbody??

Watching it on RSOE EDIS, Toronto (Where I work) now is listed with a Red Bio-Hazard flag for NDM-1...sigh....I hope this is over with before my nights on Friday.....Sars really.....really sucked. I gotta a couple funny stories.

I dropped my partner off (In uniform, in the ambulance) after a shift at his car dealership to pick up his wheels from repair, and I watched the manager literally run out from the back, covering his mouth like he had the plauge and was pumping his arm at him yelling at him to get out. I dont know how he thought he was going to get his car, but he really didnt care. My partner had to phone the guy on his cell (while looking at him through the glass) and "negotiate the release of his car". Finally a mechanic drove it out and ran away.

One restaurant near a hospital we always go had a sign that said "NO HEALTH-CARE WORKERS"

People were that scared.

We wore a gown and a mask and the stupid safety glasses (2 gowns and double gloves at the height of it by protocol)...on calls and you would walk through the mall and it was literally like moses parting the red sea.

Strange times indeed.

Not saying that's where this is going....just fond memories
lol.....

I'm the guy that fixes your IT stuff in the healthcare field so i'm not sure if I would consider myself included in this group but working with healthcare professionals for the past 5 years have been the best years of my professional career.

Keep up the great work

That's the kind of place I would go to every day in uniform. If refused service, then I would just "stage" in their parking lot until called. But..that's also why I am usually in frequent trouble...


If it were me, I would rather have healthcare workers in there than random people off the streets when it came to something like that. At least most healthcare workers are way more familiar with hand washing procedures than most!

[more Thanks for responding, I am new to ATS and I have found the site unique and very informative. The knowledge of some of the posters astounds me, while the moronity of others also astounds me. I will look forward to reading to posting when I have met the requirements and I will always enjoy reading new posts.
