Day 1 call 1

I met my partner, Michelle, at 6:30 and she showed me the morning routine. I went to paramedic school with her. While we were checking out our squad we caught up on what we have done since paramedic school. She told me that she had been working in a hospital since getting her paramedic license and had just recently decided that she wanted to be in the field. She quit the hospital and got hired onto LHHFD and AMR in Riverside. She also told me that she had only 3 patient contacts since her internship. That made me the experienced paramedic on duty.

At about 9:20 in the morning we got a call for a motorcycle down. When we got there we found the rider moving around. He was complaining of head pain and left rib pain but that was it. All his vitals were stable and there were no other injuries. He stated that he was coming around a blind curve when he came up on a stopped truck. He tried to stop but couldn't. He ditched the bike and smacked into the rear of the truck which then fled the scene. He was a very lucky motorcyclist.

Somewhere between 10 and 15 per week times a year at Gerber. A lot more than her but still not all that many. I still think of myself a s a relatively new Medic.
