Episode 20-  Primary care is one of the least glamorous areas of medicine a provider can go into prompting many doctors, physician assistants, & nurse practitioners to opt for specialties that come with higher salaries, greater recognition, & more esteem. However, primary care providers are often the first call & biggest advocate for their patients in the complex world of medicine resulting in long lasting relationships that can hardly be found elsewhere.

 

Dr. Jeff, a doctorally prepared nurse practitioner, describes his crucial role providing such care in a rural Midwest community.

 

Warning: Please be advised sensitive subjects are discussed as always, but this episode contains a case about suicide which may be particularly troubling for some listeners.

Episode 19 is packed with more stories from EMS this week. A married Firefighter/ paramedic couple share what it’s like working together as partners in an urban 911 system, moving to a rural department, parenting a Type 1 diabetic & working in a profession that they describe as a kaleidoscope of human joy and trauma. 

 
One of the calls they reflect on truly epitomizes the brief glimpse EMS gets into the lives of strangers with the bittersweet finding of note from a husband to his wife of many decades written before he passed in his sleep in the next room. The note simply said, “The donuts are in the fridge, love”, but will never be forgotten by his wife or the paramedics on scene that day.

Episode 15- The day to day for an emergency room nurse at a level 1 trauma center is never the same and while the more seasoned nurses may not be surprised by anything, they certainly can be impressed by the trouble the human body can get itself into. Christine is joined by ER nurse, Liz, who describes the challenges of advocating for patients with new doctors, triaging  patients during multi-hour wait times, and the thrill of well trained teams working in sync to save someone’s life.

 

Despite their pragmatism when providing care for patients, Christine & Liz sharing embarrassing personal stories of downplaying their own health needs to land themselves in the Emergency Room proving the old adage that nurses, medics, and doctors can be some of the worst patients.
