Default Shalom Y'all!

Well, I guess I've never said 'hi' on here. Participating in a few too many forums...

I am an ER nurse in Santa Fe, and a flight paramedic based in Albuquerque. I'm still quite new to nursing, having finished school just this past December.

In addition to my interest in emergency medical care, I have a special interest in the interface of Judaism and health care. We are traditional, observant folks and that plays an important role in everything we do. I came to nursing after a two decade career in Jewish religious education.

When I get my act together, I intend to get an Israeli nursing license so that I can work in both Israel and the US.

God bless you all in your patient care endeavours!

Hmmm....'fraid I don't have anything really good to offer on that. I do critical care transports now; so most of our missions are transporting severely ill or injured patients to higher levels of care, or sometimes just to a hospital closer to home. We do a fair number of flights repatriating people up your way. CCT is it's own kind of excitement, different from 911.

I guess my strangest almost patient was a near birth when I was a combat medic. We had pulled back for a rest inside of Israel, and one of the guys had called his wife. She came out to the field where we were, very much pregnant, to visit with her husband and the guys for a bit. She started having contractions, but got to a hospital in plenty of time. My usual patients were otherwise healthy, athletic males. I really dreaded the idea of delivering in the field; but it didn't happen.

My most memorable patient was my first as a solo medic. I'd guess that's true for all of us. Most memorable is the first time on our own.

How're things up the Valley? I used to live in Vancouver. I miss it at times.
