Assalamualaikum. 533 more days before I bid farewell to the ambulance and serving the paramedics. Paramedics... paramedics... paramedics. Big headache. Both parties, the paramedics and medics claimed that we give each other headache. Well, I have to agree to the medics to a larger extend. This is because, stated in the responsibililties of Medical Orderly, medics are supposed to HELP
Paramedics in the ambulance and assist them in the paper work. Now let me ask you a question, when someone is helping you, do you scold or shout at him/her rudely for doing wrong things? Come on, it is nice of him wanting to help you even though he is "forced" into doing it. The medics are having the prime of their youth life. Age 19-23 man! Give them a break! However, not all of them are like that, some paramedics, in fact most of them are nice. They know their responsibilities and they carried them well. They also know that they themselves willingly sign the contract and put on the uniform to be paramedics and hence should not treat their assistants who are unfortunately us, as their punching bag when they are angry.
Again and again, people are asking to sign on as Paramedics, and I firmly say no everytime. No way I am going to be a paramedic. If it is true that I want to save lives, it is more worth it to be a qualified doctor. Looking at their lives, I will never give a thought about being one. I want to continue my studies in the university and if possible up to the Doctorate level. For whatever reason, there is no way I want to do that job and work with that type of people!
