Overheard On The Bolance

Driving a stable BLS patient with an injection site reaction to the ED just now:

***sounds of defibrillator charging***

AD: “Um, anything going on back there that I should know about?”

EMT Partner: “Nope, nothing to see here. Move along.”

AD: “Wrong button, huh?”

EP: “Just a little prophylactic defibrillation. Nothing to be concerned about.”

AD: “You know, it’s not really nice to scare your partner like that.”

EP: “I like to keep my options open. That’s how this EMT rolls, baby.”
