The Grim Medic
Your patient didn't die because you put a 20g in instead of an 18g - he died because he had a massive heart attack.
Your patient didn't die because you couldn't stop the bleeding - he died because his body was crushed in a violent car accident.
I wish we would stop judging each other with "He/She shouldn't have done it that way" or "He/She's going to kill someone one day". Unless you were on that call try to keep your judgments to yourself. There's no worse critic then the medic himself who's questioning if he did everything he could and asking if he made any mistakes. He doesn't need armchair paramedics telling everyone how they would have rocked that call instead.
Let's try supporting ourselves instead of bashing each other to make ourselves look good.
