Ok, ok, an update...

Well, everything has been pretty calm on the Paramedic front. The majority of my paramedic's calls are to complaints such as abdominal pain, shortness of breath, that sort of thing. Nothing all that interesting. All he does for those patients is take their history, start an iv, maybe give a breathing treatment, and transport.

Here's a funny little story. One slow day, my paramedic and his partners went to the hospital to help out. My paramedic was starting an iv on a patient and the nurse asked him how his skills were. When he said they were fine, she said 'oh yeah, you're a paramedic.' Then she grabbed the arm of the patient and started shaking it. When the patient wanted to know what the heck she was doing, she said that since paramedics are used to starting iv's in the back of a shaky ambulance, they're not used to hitting a stationary target.
