When our patient is angry, we quit being polite and professional and we respond with anger.
When the traffic is heavy, we quit waiting for everyone to yield appropriately and we drive faster.
When the dispatcher doesn’t hear us, we quit using proper radio etiquette and we talk faster and louder.
When were working an insane amount of overtime to make ends meet, we quit eating right and exercising.
When our patient can’t respond to us, we quit talking to them.
When our significant other is fed up with juggling our EMS life and their neglected relationship with us, we avoid talking about it and work more shifts.
Isn’t it interesting that, when we encounter a problem or a challenge, it’s our nature to quit doing the thing we need to do most?
I’d like to know what you think about that.
