As a hypochondriac, is there a general way of distinguishing between a medical emergency and something that is not?
I monitor temp/bp/hr/sat, but I have no idea if that provides any useful indication of whether or not I need to go to the hospital.
Awhile back I drove myself to the ER for severe pain in the inner thigh that had me worrying about DVT despite a lack of redness or swelling. An ultrasound confirmed that it was literally nothing at all. I'm on a first name basis with most of the hospital's night shift now, and I imagine they wish I wasn't.
How hard was it for you to find a job? My friend graduated a couple months ago from the academy and is having a bitch of a time finding a job. Mine starts in a couple months and i'm scared shitless of not finding employment.
I'm in the process of applying to hospitals and I've already been rejected by 3. You have any other tips for someone without any experience in the field? Only have volunteer experience with university squad
Apply everywhere not just hospitals, good attitude. Commitment to being submissive to authority is important. It's hard but everyone in ER is above you, and you have to act like it. Yes sir no sir and not fucking things up goes a long way
