I'm just another EMT in the bin of EMT's.
Working on the paperwork - senseless paperwork where databases that should work well with each other...do...not...relate. Checking credentials. Hand-entering NREMT data (how stupid is that?)
Between one and two hundred providers in our system, maybe a double handful of them are actually good at their jobs. Who want to do medical calls. Who care.
Studying, training for the big calls. Not getting called. Budgets are down, people are circling the wagons. We don't need all those resources, you see. Don't bother paging out the call.
So I sit. Waiting. Working. For what?
We are broken. EMS is broken. Why am I putting my time and energy into the ridiculousness of this?
