Well.

Social Media Says

Oh yea, there are definitely frequent class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/flyers">flyers in EMS. Even the dispatchers will eventually just be like hey, you gotta class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/go">go back to Clarences house, he tried to mow his lawn again.
They thought 9-1-1 was the goal.
My dad does this. He tells me that some class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/people">people call 911 class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/a">a lot for attention. class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/Really">Really class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/a">a huge waste of everyone's tax dollars. So yeah, it may cost you $1000 for the class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/ambulance">ambulance because you got in class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/a">a car accident, but the old lady who was class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/a">a class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/terrible">terrible mom so her kids never visit calls for am class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/ambulance">ambulance 5 times class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/a">a week because she wants attention, and she doesn't have to pay class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/a">a cent. It's the class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/same">same with Life Alert too. My dad said they've only legitimately saved someone once in the last 20 years on his department because of Life Alert. The rest just press the button for any class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/simple">simple problem in their lives. One lady pushed the button because she lost her TV remote. We class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/really">really gotta teach old class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/people">people not to be so annoying, class="u-nolinkc" href="https://worldnewsinpictures.com/I">I swear.


What You Really Think

Same. Usually a junkies house where they constantly od.

I'm on a nick name basis with the Pizza Hut dude. Was working on 'smoke a bowl' basis but I'm about to move out of the area.

My wife used to work a grocery store, had a regular EMT say he had to reboot the same overdosing woman 7 times in nine days.

My department goes to one guy 5-8 times a day.

"Get in loser, we're going to the hospital" has nearly left my lips before. As much as patient care isn't supposed to be affected and an assessment is supposed to be done on every patient, after working 20 hours straight and you got me out of bed after my first 15 minute nap of the shift and it's my 5th time seeing you this month for something stupid, I'm literally just driving you to the hospital. Unless there is ABC compromise. After doing this pandemic, my emergency medicine folks are all walking around smelling like vodka with untucked shirts and 5 o'clock shadows, even the ladies We are going to be the people calling an ambulance and an engine company because we're too fat to stand up in 20 years.

I live in an apartment complex, the ambulance is at my complex 3-4 days a week. It's always for one of two units, 3 people from 1 unit, and one from the other.

Nothing better for your depression than when the delivery guy asked if youre working and you say no and you end up working at a pizza place. Who needs anti depressants when you have free pizza everyday. Fml.

When my depression was pretty bad, I ended up placing $70 door dash orders for Indian food. But the delivery driver was very nice, but a talker. So it would be him again. Id sigh, talk for close to half an hour, then go eat my cold Indian food.

I'm just gonna imagine you're Papa John going turncoat after the falling out with his company.

When my depression is at its lowest I shop little things on Aliexpress (I shouldnt I know), we dont have a letter box where I live so the lady that take care of the building take all of our mail and hand deliver it to everybody. The other day she told me something like You receive a lot of packages ! I felt SO aweful.

Take me as a witness.

You can tell whos not in the medical field. This is very normal.

I don't think this is exclusive to the UK.

It happened to my neighbor 14 times last year a literally more than once a month. They were really pushing for him to move into a home but he died a couple months ago.

I'd eventually start hoping I'd die so I wouldn't have to be embarrassed any further.

Theres a guy where I work who has a specific protocol hes called so much.

Even in the labor room wed have them too. Not like lots of triage antepartum visits for pregnancy issues, but there are definitely ones that come to the hospital excessively for every wave of nausea and even stretch marks. I mean like the ladies wed see every year pregnant again. Around the time youd realize it had been some time since youve seen so-and-so BAM! Youve conjured her presence and there she was having another one. Almost always of the similar ilk of EMS / ED frequent flyers.

Can agree the local cops know me... but not domestic issues just drunk n town.

Depends on demographics of area but usually ground level falls when elderly can't help themselves up or drug overdoses.

Theres the people with mobility issues that fall all the time and just need help up off the floor, and then theres the ones that call repeatedly for drug use and/or mental health, and then theres the ones that genuinely just call because they love the attention and think its fun having all the medics know who they are.

On the receiving end - we had the same ems/ambulance crew 5-6 times due to having a daughter with frequent seizures. They got to know us pretty well that summer.

It varies a lot, but if they arent taking him to the hospital during those visits it is probably something like a lift assist (Ive fallen and I cant get up).

Alcoholics getting hammered daily and calling in to take a fun little ride to the hospital just because high/drunk homeless people calling for chest pain to get a ride back to the city hospital just to stumble out of triage as they get there that one guy who refuses to go to a nursing home and calls 911 to try and get you to wipe his ass or grab the tv remote lots of reasons.

Because theyre a depressed lonely alcoholic.

If the police are showing up with EMS then people are overdosing there.

Steve's a real one!
