School Stress

I remember when I was younger and in school I thought that the students had all the stress. Funny how years later I wish I only had the worries of a student. We were called to our local elementary school for an ill person. When we got there we were greeted by one of the faculty stating that she did not call us and that there was no way that we were going to take her to the hospital. She was feeling a little weak and dizzy and could tell that her blood pressure was up. We checked it for her and she was right. After letting her know that she needed to get checked out she said she would get in to see her doctor just as soon as she could. She then signed out AMA.

After that she related to us her last experience with the fire department. Several months earlier she had stopped by the station because she was feeling the same way she did today. She said that she was met by a larger paramedic that didn't seem to know what he was doing and another paramedic that was rather pushy about getting her to the hospital. She stated that she really didn't like the experience and was reluctant to call 911 since. She told us that we had restored her faith in the fire department and would no longer refuse to call us if she needed us.
