EMS Lifestyle

Hey, my names Shannon! I'm a 22 year old EMT from Boston. and this is my life as an over worked underpaid EMT.



Shit we say to patients

1.We won’t be going lights an sirens today, my license is still on probation.

2.You’re our one hundredth customer today, you get to drive!

3.Is this your first time in an ambulance? Wow! Mine too!

4.We try not to drop people. It’s a lot of paperwork, and I don’t spell so good.

… 5.Don’t worry, this is my lucky needle. I never miss with this needle.

6.Putting the cannula on before it’s hooked up to oxygen and giving them the other end, “If you feel like you need more air just blow through here”

7.Got a couple seat belts for you. You’ll appreciate them when my partner starts driving. He’s an ex NASCAR driver. They kicked him out for turning right.

8.Don’t tell anyone I did a good job, you’ll ruin my reputation.

9.If I did a bad job my name’s Steve.

10.Ambulating little old ladies or (men) to the stretcher or stair chair and supporting them always say “May I have this dance?”.

11.When picking up from hospitals and asking pts if theres anything else they’d like to take,offer to take the T.V too.
