Friday The 13th - part one: Fall With Injuries

This Friday the 13th we were busy by our standards. Our department averages between one and two calls per day. We had six.

The first call was for a fall with injuries. The lady, a fairly frequent flyer due to her numerous medical problems, had twisted her ankle the night before. I let Junior practice his patient assessment and treatment. He almost forgot to splint the ankle but did an over all ok job. We loaded her an the ambulance and went back to the station for some PT (physical training).
