Overtime on the old RRV ……

November 12, 2006


Getting my kit sorted for two days overtime on the RRV. Looking forward to the shifts as hopefully in between jobs I can catch up on some admin.

Working in a different patch as well which should prove interesting so I hope I can meet interesting people in interesting places and stick big sharp pointy needles in them….if needs be of course!

If only we had Scum Nav….!

Last nights shift was fairly busy to start with….chest pains, fitter and the proverbial drunk. Later on we went to another fitter and whilst dealing with the patient in his house…some scumbags broke into our ambulance and stole the sat nav screen!!!

We did,nt realise until we got back in the vehicle after clearing at the aforementioned patients house (fits due to alcohol withdrawal and he did,nt want to go to A/E.) It was only when we pushed “Not required” on the Terrafix and we got sent a job for a Cat A Red Call on the other side of the city did we notice ….no sat nav screen! Bugger!

So off we went to the job as luckily I knew where I was going. It was one of those working jobs where we needed back up and a bit of ingenuity to extricate the patient from the up stairs of the house.

After clearing at the A/E we were then sent back to station to do the police statements and swop vehicles (which meant swopping the entire kit from one to the other!) We were off line for more than 2 hours….all due to some thieving scumbags!!!

I wish the police had “scum nav” then once they were caught we could strap their legs down to a table with barbed wire and then using a hand drill with a broken rusty drill bit covered in dog shit we would drill into their tibia and extract the bonemarrow replacing it with hydrochloric acid….or we could cheese grate their finger ends off with a very rusty cheese grater covered in tramps diahorrea.

Just a thought….a passing thought…thats all….but what a thought!!!
