On April 8th my daughter started crying in pain and sweating badly, started having some type of seizure and we called the ambulance. We live pretty far out down a gravel road so it took them some time to get to us. Once they got here my daughter kept coming in and out of consciousness and then proceded to throw up. It seemed like it took them quite awhile  to get us even gone as they blew up a carseat for her which I know they had to. Is there a general protocol as to when they actually turn the sirens on? They drove as if nothing was really going on until we got closer to the hospital and then they thought she might of had a stroke and so they did drive faster on the interstate but still no lights and even let cars turn out in front of us and such on the roads in town. I am by no means criticizing them because I know if they wouldnt have came my daughter wouldnt be here as she is 15 months and did suffer a minor stroke and underwent a craneotomy due to a bleeding blood vessel in her brain. It just seems to me things could have went a bit smoother but maybe i'm wrong?..

If you have a problem with the ambulance Gary (crazyhorse)is the one to talk to. He really cares about his district and how his emt/paramedics handle a crisis. Once you explain to him what happened he will let you know what should have or have not been done in this certain circumstance. He truely is great when it comes to that and he will listen.
 
I know what happened and have to say that I was in disbelief that the sirens nor lights were used in her situation. I dont feel they evaluated her very well or they would have. I am glad she did arrive when she did at the hospital or she wouldnt be here with us today. And it was just in the nick of time!
 
How are things going? I havent heard or talked to you in awhile. Have been thinging about you alot!

Wow I'm sorry you had to deal with that, I pray your daughter makes a full recovery.  Why do they blow up a carseat?  Couldn't they have used her carseat?

OK, thank you okie.
   bg2007, you are welcome to call me at 573-774-5413, or stop by. If you need me to I can meet you in Crocker. First thing I need to know if it was PCAD ambulance. I can tell you a lot of things in general, for example: lights, sirens and spped are not the most successful or modern therapy. Most calls are made more dangerous by those. If you ever interested I can send you my articles on lights, sirens and speed and the myths and dangers thereof. Mostly long traditions and culture of little value by police, fire and ambulance. I will check the log book for April 8 and see if was our call. If it was I will read the chart and talk to the EMT and paramedic on the call. I will not put private patient information on here. But, I will try to find a way to communicate with you.

Gary I have another question after reading this again...
 
*why have blow up carseats? why not just have them on the gurney? In case of an accident wouldnt the blow up seats pop? or possibly get punctured by equipment if you were in an accident? I was just thinking about that when I read they had to blow up a carseat. So... my enquiring mind wanted to know LOL.

Hi showme, good question. The car seats we use are state-of-the-art. They are recommended by the pediatric experts and standards. The seats conform to the child and provide the ultimate in safety and protection for the child. Then when secured on the cot, and we have special devices in our ambulances called Stat Tracs, that provide the best bknown safety in case, pray not, of an accident the Stat Trac holds the cot in place. So, the ped. carseat keeps the child safe and secure and immobilizes the neck and back well, plus secured to the cot. Such a good question and I hope I answered clearly for you.
 
As always, nice visiting with you,
 
Gary

Hee hee it was bugging me especially with my past experience! LOL you and I are going to have to share that story with the PCW they would NEVER believe me if I told it. I know my teacher didnt in college when I wrote the story as an essay. She wrote "Great Imagination!" with and A+ and I had to let her know it was all true!!!
I would NEVER put your department down for anything I understand this is a tough job and they arent Doctors and they do the best they can in difficult situations. Lives are in your hands. However, there are always questions about certain things and its great you take the time to answer! I have had nurses that I have asked questions too and SOME are down right rude! Its my body and I want to know what your putting in me and why and what it is! LOL I am highly allergic to morphine/demoral and I was glad I asked a Lake Ozark Hospital nurse in the ER what she was given me cause it was demoral and I had to tell her that I was ALLERGIC! She then blocked off the IV and the head nurse came in... she wasnt happy with her. We are all human and can make mistakes but having a red band on the wrist that your given drugs in and 1 minute before being asked what you are allergic to and then be given it is viable for questioning what is happening with you! LOL

Thanks for being so honest and answering our questions! Love you for that!

Showmehillbilly, someday when you have time we will. I will interview you, then we can write the story and put it in my column. It will probably take two or three parts for the paper as we are required to do 450 words at a time now.  I think I have a photo of that ambulance somewhere still.

I'll try to be faster next time.

Don't feel bad, Gary. I have this board up virtually anytime I'm plugged into the internet so I can click "refresh" and see if there's some sort of news I've missed. (I do the same with Google News and a couple of other news sources.) Even so, I've gotten yelled at by a few people here for not responding fast enough to questions about news events, even when the questions weren't directed to me!

Life was harder in many ways before the internet. Believe me, I remember all too well what it was like to have to write my articles via longhand on a legal pad, find a pay phone, and call them in to a secretary in the newsroom who would take shorthand dictation, type it up on a Selectric typewriter, and hand the doublespaced text to a copy editor, and then he'd mark it up in pencil and hand it to a news editor who would re-edit it, and then he'd hand it to a typesetter who would retype it on a Linotype machine. And don't even THINK about what it was like to have to develop black-and-white film of breaking news on deadline, worried about spilling the chemicals and irretrievably ruining a whole roll of film for what was intended to be a front-page photo.

However, not everything about technology makes my life easier. Developing technology such as e-mail, wi-fi, the web, and cell phones all make some things much harder, including enabling people to get ahold of me at virtually any time of the day or night, either for good reasons or to give me what, in Missouri-speak, seems to be called an "ass-whooping."

Thank you Darrell. I know, I knew I should answer blissfullybusy faster...   I wanted to read the chart first and see what happened. And, as you know, because of my committment to patient privacy...and of course the law...I am limited to what I can say about specific cases. So, before answering blissfullybusy's question I wanted to see. They ask good questions and you know me, I want to answer them. This helps the people we serve know why we do certain things.
 
I get questions from all over. A lady from another state called the other day. She reads health care articles she can find on the web. She wanted some help regarding an article I wrote a few weeks ago. I also still have a readership in the printed news too. I got a good local response from my article about the old hospital the other day. One lady told me she read the article and it made her cry. The feedback from the readers, as you know Darrell, makes the work worth while. Also, I always remember EX-Ed, because he would give me feedback when he was editor. As well, a writer I greatly respect, Ray Campbell, who use to write at Daily Guide, use to give me feedback. Hearing good words from such as he and ex-ed...and the conversing with the readers, inspires the writer to try and do a good job.

He and his team have my respect also
My mother (age 92) was with a friend and had a small fender bender - the EMT/Paramedic checked her over and when my mom said she was find - didn't hurt anywhere the EMT/Paramedic gave her the ambulance district phone # and said you call me anytime if you begin to hurt anywhere.  Later that night the EMT/Paramedic called my mother at home and asked her how she was feeling and did she hurt anywhere.  You can't ask for better service than that.  That EMT/Paramedic went above their call of duty and I thank Gary and his team.

Gary please do pass my message on to your staff.  In February I called 911 as my mother was very weak and your team showed up - they were so very professional and so sweet to my mother.  they took her by ambulance to Phelps County - she was in the hospital for 8 days but passed away.  Could you tell that sweet EMT/paramedic that went above and beyond her call of duty that Ruth McKendrick passed away. I wanted to come to the ambulance base and tell them myself but her death was not expected and a shock.  Thank you again for all you do and you do have a great team that you should be proud of.
