Sometimes I say, “WTF?!”

The other day I was in the area of Sacred Heart Hospital and saw this sticker on a car.

Nothing says quality patient care like a skull and crossbones

Nothing says quality patient care like a skull and crossbones

Dirty deeds?  Sure.  You name it, I’ve kneeled in it.  Dirt cheap?  Not quite.  I’m risking my life to save another.

But a skull and cross bones?  Uh, not quite.  I’m willing to bet that that the other care providers that may read this blog agree with me.

Till later,

    Reminds me of the time I was on the EST (AF equivalent of SWAT). We had a patch made that said “Nothing stops a man like a gaping chest wound” and it had crosshairs over a silhouette. But we weren’t allowed to wear it.

    Ya, but with the EST (I remember them) you were supposed to blast people. A Paramedic is supposed to heal people. Last I checked skull and crossbones = bad.

    Hank, I would love you forever for one of those patches.

    Hell, our station’s insignia consists of unicorns, dolphins and the dreamcatcher (symbols we always find in our patient’s homes).

    As far as paramedic stuff goes, I was amazed that they will let me (Jethro Bodine) intubate someone laying in a gutter in the rain, but when you go to the hospital, it is immaculate, bright and stocked to the gills with personnel. Plus, the doctor doing the tubing is pulling down some serious cash (he deserves it). So I guess I understand the dirty and cheap line, because in comparison, paramedics really are!

    Ok, I’ll give you the cheap part. And I remember ages ago working for (the first) Spokane Ambulance when a doc tried to intubate a patient at St. Lukes when it was a hospital. He wasn’t doing so hot and I mentioned to a nurse that I could probably do better as a field EMT.

    I’ll have to take a peek at your station’s insignia. I’ve never looked at it that close. When was it designed?
