I’m almost done with EMT school, and I can verify this 100%. We don’t give a shit what you’ve taken or how illegal it may be. We want to know what and how much so we can save your ass. Unless its directly related to a crime scene in some way, we don’t tell.
It makes me enraged and also deeply saddened that the police state has become so entwined with every aspect of our lives that people are afraid to tell the truth to people trying to render them with emergency care. We’ve broken ourselves.
Boost because everyone should know!!!
My uncle was an EMT and I can verify this is true.
It’s a hundred percent true the only time police will be involved Is if you have endangered the lives of another adult or child. Until that happens you will not get in trouble, your life means more to a doctor than the mistakes you made to put yourself in that position
I was in the ER on Tuesday night and I saw two cops drag an unconscious girl in with her boyfriend lagging behind, his eyes the size of dinner plates. When the nurse asked about drugs the boyfriend looked at the cops nervously and said no. The nurse sort of looked at him and at her limp body and just sort of nodded. IT IS VITAL TO BE HONEST WITH NURSES. Or try your hardest. Seriously.
