People who know me and have seen me work, often ask me why I am no longer a Paramedic. There are several reasons, but one reason might be illustrated by the linked article.
Every day it amazes me that the human race has lasted this long. Now before I start getting poison emails, let it be known; I do not think ALL EMS people are this way. I know many many fine medics. Intelligent, capable, caring, etc. But over the last several years, I have witnessed class after class, of, for the lack of a better phrase, MORONS.
I know common sense is not something which can be taught in a class, but there has to be a point where we say, one must have at least the common sense skills of a telephone pole to be able get into class. The ones I have seen lately, do not have the common sense of a bowl of corn flakes.
Is it something in the environment which has caused this? Is it genetic, or is there a special school?
