Patients are ingrates sometimes
Tw drugs, tw overdose, tw vomit
Was part of an overdose call in a city where it’s unfortunately fairly common. Cops gave him 4 mg, medics gave another 4 before he finally started coming around. My job was to give him artificial respiration with a Bag Valve Mask. He started breathing on his own after a minute or two, and my next job was to hold the puke bag. That much bar an tends to make people hurl. The guy LEANS BACK, away from the barf bag, and blasts his lunch all over himself and me. Ends up going through three more sick bags before he got Zofran. No “thank you”. No “you guys saved my life” just “shit, did I OD?”
Yeah buddy, you did.
