I Went To The Hospital In An Ambulance

Earlier in the week was the opportunity to ride along with the Central 911 folks. We waited for a few hours, as I presented new technologies to the IT staff, and then the calls started coming in.

Two of the calls, this gave the opportunity to see how some of the locals live and their limited resources. That was highlighted by arrival at the state run hospital, which really does not compare to those we are use to in the states.

The last call was a motorcycle accident during rush hour. We will spare all the details. Since there was a lot of blood, for this call, I decided to ride in the front, instead of in the back with the patient.

Everyone will be okay. And for me, it was another eye opening experience.
