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!!!
A friend of mine got really fucked up from medicine given to him at a hospital because he was too nervous to tell the paramedics he was speedballing. It almost killed him, so I gotta put this out here
This is totally 100% true. I was at a house show and an underaged girl had been unintentionally mixing alcohol and her prescription meds. When the two started reacting badly together we had to call an ambulance. They didn’t tell the cops about the underage drinking and the night went on smoothly after that
