and due to the selective $$ over-saturation and wide spread redundancy, the loss of these HEMS bases would have little if any effect on access/coverage for the patient

If we could decrease the current 1000+ HEMS bases in the US by 30-40%. It would do nothing but improve cost to patients and medical quality

One of the most poignant toasts I have heard. (From the holiday dinner of my local EMS/Fire service) Heres to the wives/husbands/SOs of our responders. You sometimes are awoken by screams in the middle of the night. You dont judge or get annoyed. You just put us back to bed.

Sometimes my greatest value in these situations is.. I know what not to do- and when not to do it

Very nervous MVC patient being loaded into helicopter: "Do you mean I have to trust my life to a perfect stranger?" Flight nurse: "don't worry there's nothing about Abernethy that's perfect"

Today, I met the people who saved my life. I’ve been tweeting about my cardiac arrest since I woke up in the ICU and re-downloaded twitter ( deleted it for my own safety and concluded that if I could figure out how to get it back, I was safe to tweet again)

I can honestly say I have never witnessed a shark bite. But I have cared for at least 30 patients who were seriously injured or killed by cows

I was working a small Wisconsin community hospital. By no means a trauma center. I saw 2 gunshot wounds last night.
