I Love Being in EMS Because
Regretfully, I left the fire / EMS model because of the constant egotistical bickering among those who truly do know better. Much of urban EMS is a caricature of what it could be.

"America's Dumbest Doctors" an edgy-humorous view of a deadly serious matter

I invite EMS professionals to take a look at "America's Dumbest Doctors" - a non-fiction study of the phenomenal volume of physician misbehavior in America.

Just wondering about that Travolta incident. Doesn't the Bahamas have any rules like HIPAA in the US about releasing patient information. I saw news reports of one of the EMTs telling every last detail about the call. People in the US and most companies would get fired and have their EMT/Medic etc license revokes for violating patient confidentiality. Even if there wasn't a law, commen decency should have kept him from opening his mouth and giving EMS workers a bad name by talking. You can't believe how many questions from people I have had about that here in California.
