This video may be comically exaggerated, but I’m sure EMT’s everywhere have stories of patients who seriously injure themselves by doing stupid things. We certainly feel a great sense of empathy for the patient’s pain & responsibility to care for the patient in the best way possible. Having said that, we sometimes can’t help feeling frustrated when the injury was easily avoidable.  Feel free to elaborate in the comments on your own exasperation when the patient could’ve avoided injury with a little common sense.

I’ve known about this cute safety video for a little while now. However, I wasn’t sure if I should post it due to it’s dash of morbidity. Then I thought: why don’t you decide? Let me know what you think in the comments.

As father of a seven-year-old, the unthinkable tragedy in Newtown, CT hits me hard. Even so, I haven’t allowed myself to think about it too much; I don’t think I would deal well with the anxiety & pain. What the parents & relatives of these poor children & staff members must be going through must be beyond description. I can’t imagine what the first responders & backup among police, fire & EMS must have been thinking or feeling. Yet they faithfully performed their duties in the face of the unthinkable. My heart goes out to all involved & affected. Rest in peace.
