Not much interesting has happened during any one shift lately. There have been calls that I've been procrastinating about writing up.
Went out on a female that attempted suicide by taking a LOT of narcotic pills (the legal/prescribed kind) and chasing them with vodka. She changed her mind and called 911. When we arrived, PD had the note she'd written, and we set to work on getting her loaded onto the stretcher. Quickly got IV access and pushed Narcan to perk her back up some.
Last I heard, they were going to pump her stomach and she'd probably not suffer any physical effects.
A couple days ago, as we're about to make our plates for dinner, we get toned out for a MVC with entrapment.
Here's what we find on arriving to the scene
The van's driver gave a couple different stories, but it looks like she stomped the gas pedal on accident. Thankfully, nobody was hurt. We hung around to watch the tow trucks separate and load the cars. We were mainly curious how they were going to handle the van.
We made it back, ate dinner, and didn't do much of anything the remainder of the shift.
