I’m working nights this week, so my writing time is limited by the routine of ‘Sleep – Eat – Work – Repeat’. Couple that with a very difficult upcoming post to write and I would beg your short indulgence in the madness that strikes me when I’m constantly jetlagged.
I have two ideas. One is more serious than the other.
I’ll leave you to decide which is the serious one.
The LAS should have business cards printed up which state something along the lines of “Due to your inability to control your drinking of alcohol you have wasted the time and resources of – an emergency ambulance and staff (including dispatchers and call takers), an A&E department along with nurses, doctors, radiographers and other NHS staff. Please think on this”. We could then leave these in the pockets of the drunk patients we pick up, so that they could reflect on their behaviour when sober.
We might have to get it printed up in a few languages though…
Concerning maternataxis at 5:30am. Can I beat one of them to death please? Just as a warning to the others.
Finally, before I go to bed, a quick “Hello” to Emma who I passed in a hospital ambulance bay last night. Sorry I ran off but the nurse had something important to tell me.
