Doctors ensure that you will live long enough to eventually nail the pavement again.
Nurses ensure that you keep your dignity by cleaning up after you your pants.

It is his belief that EMTs are crucial to his job being successful. and that nurses are annoying and get in his way alot more than being helpful.
funny... it's my belief that doctors don't know their from a hole in the ground, and when new fellows hit the floor it is the nurses that keep those dumbasses from killing patients with wrong medications. doctors see a patient for 10 minutes a day... do you really think they are capable of quality patient care the remainder of the day? tell your friend he is a stupid fuktard and I hope I never have to work with his stupid

I was taken to Memorial Hermann when I was injured. I have been told it is the equivalent, or slightly better then Taub when it comes to Trauma wounds.

I have NO complaints whatsoever about Mem Hermann.

Dang, don't be so ANGRY FACE all of the time!

BTW, guys; there ARE non-medic drivers out there working emergency vehicles. They're cheaper than paramedics and EMTs. The guy in the back of the bus has to be a paramedic (or EMT-B/I if an extra beside the EMT-Paramedic is available and the patient is not in need of anything above basic care), but the one driving can be non medical personnel as long as they are DOT certified to drive an ambulance.

JP, I dunno, maybe your company does it different, but that's how we roll. Shoot, after all of the that you put up with on calls I didn't think someone calling you an "ambulance driver" would get you goin'. Would you like a hug?

Also there is NO DOT certification to "drive" an ambulance in the state of Texas. and if ya want the website I'll give it to ya, right about the time that the Enforcement officer puts the shiney steel bracelets on your

You guys can talk smack about Ben Taub if you want but if it wasnt for them I would be in a wheelchair today. Fyi most motorcycle related injuries are taken there as well as Twelve Oaks.

pretty much. they'll patch you up and stabilize you. do they a good job, i've heard of miracles being performed. that being said, once you're good and stable, get transferred out.
