We’re ending 2018 with a bang! How many nurse practitioners have stories that involve flash-bang grenades going off? Well these 3 NPs certainly do! Christine is joined by the guys of Just Some Podcast, Tom & Ben, to discuss their unique paths from police officers to becoming nurse practitioners. There are plenty of cop & EMS stories in this episode, but make sure you listen to the end. Tom shares the heart wrenching call as an officer that made him want to become a nurse and Ben reflects on the 3 types of patients you encounter in medicine.

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.

Why We Do It

In the world of medicine we focus intently on advancements, improving patient outcomes, and pushing the bounds of science to better health, yet rarely as clinicians do we sit down to have detailed conversations with the very people we are trying to help or have helped.

 

It is a great privilege for us to speak with one person whose case was described in the episode Do What You Can, Air Force EOD TSgt Daniel Fye. Dan shares what it was like getting wounded by an IED in Afghanistan with the surprising symptom of unquenchable thirst to recovery & rehabilitation requiring him to regrow part of his remaining leg. Dan is an incredible example of perseverance, resilience, and strength all of which are exemplified by his recent completion of the fire academy & becoming a Firefighter.

 

Dan’s story reminds us that this is Why We Do It.

We respectfully remember the friend’s of TSgt Fye mentioned in the episode,

TSgt Kristoffer M. Solesbee & SSgt Joseph J. Hamski KIA May 26, 2011

Shorabak district, Kandahar, Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Death is an inevitable part of medicine and few come face to face with it as often or as closely as emergency medicine providers. Christine is joined by Emergency Room nurse, Beth, as they discuss the unique, & sometimes oddly normal ways in which people have passed away. Nurses, paramedics, EMTs, and doctors strive to make death as dignified as possible, but peculiar situations seem to be the way of life.
