A Run Down the Hill

We were on our morning hike about half way to the top when we got a call for a woman that had fallen and possibly dislocated her hip. We jogged as fast as we could down the hill and once we hit flatter ground we ran for the engine. By the time that we got on scene we were dripping with sweat. Our patient wanted to know why we were dressed up in all our gear if there was no fire. We explained what we were doing while we assessed the patient We wanted to make her as comfortable as possible but she had a minor allergy to Morphine. So we gave her some Benadryl first, then loaded her up with narcotics. That way she wouldn't be in too much pain while moving her. We never did finish our hike that day.
