Day 4.5 Video Journal

IMGP1403Hi Chaps,

As promised here is an extra little video journal to show some of the differences Justin and I discuss about one of the jobs we attended yesterday.

  1. Thanks Mark for taking the time to share the extra comments. You're right in thinking that this kind of comment is exactly what this paramedic podcaster is looking to hear. Of course, I look forward to anything you and Justin are posting during this amazing crossover event.

  2. I am even more curious as to Justin's thoughts on NHS jobs now. Knowing that you are able to refuse transport to patients is a completely foreign idea to me and I have been on both sides of the pond. Doing this job over here I see people that call us for the most ridiculous reasons, but if they want a ride we ave to give it to them. I think the NHS way is good, but wonder if you guys ever run into a case where the patient seemed able to go by their own car, but something happened and maybe they really should have gone by ambulance and it has come back to bite you in the arse because you guys didn't take him/her? Not just your service in Newcastle, but maybe elsewhere in the NHS Trust? Great work on the vids and I am really looking forward to the complete vid from Chronicles of EMS. I'll even Pre-order a DVD now if it will help get Setla over to your neck of the woods to finish the job.

  3. Excellent, Mark. Thanks for taking the extra time to delineate the differences you see as an outsider looking in. You are a respected professional and your perspective is not only valuable, but unique. I know it seems as if there is never enough time to do all you want to do, but know that we appreciate your efforts and constantly (selfishly?) await your every update. On a side note, my blog partners are holding me to my word to use “whilst” in every post, so there you have it.Oh, and “Mind the Gap!”-J

  4. Mark, thanks for posting this, as this indeed gets to one of the issues a lot of us are interested in hearing your and Justin's perspective.Service initiated refusals are fraught with danger and most service providers here in the US do not allow them. As you are seeing, the mantra among most US EMS services is “you call, we haul.”There are some legitimate rationales for this line of thought, and I have it on my list for a future post. Perhaps once your project is finished and the true discussion begins will be the appropriate time to put my measly two cents in.For now, keep up the good work and be safe.Pete
